Mary from The Old Parkdale Inn turned me on to this hiking trail near Mt. Hood last October when she hosted an inn full of "lady innkeepers." Still thinking that this trail was pretty good for someone wanting to experience a nice hike with a easy grade, I chose to take my daughter there today.
Always trying to find new things to do in Oregon isn't hard at all. And when you find that perfect spot in the universe, you wanna keep going back. I was trying to remember how many inns I have stayed at near the Hood River area. I think I counted five! Hood River B & B, The Old Parkdale Inn, The Mt. Hood Hamlet, Seven Oaks B & B and now tonight, Sakura Ridge Farm and Lodge! Hmmm...think I may be on to something! It's gorgeous here in the Hood River region and for some reason, I keep coming back! It kind of helps when this huge white mountain is the back drop for wine tasting, picking pears, eating delicious food and hiking!
I am pretty much "in love" with all of Oregon and hope that I never take it all for granted! I hope that I can continue enticing folks to come here and experience a stay in one of our Oregon Bed and Breakfast Guild Inns and experience Oregon one region at a time.
It is amazing how one state can so perfectly...well...just be perfect! Grape stomping in the Willamette Valley, pears in the Hood River region begging to be plucked to make that very yummy Oregon Pear Brandy you're always hankering for, watching the sunset on the Oregon coast, drinking the best brew from the "brew capitol" of the world...(in case you didn't know...Portland wins that one hops down!), nibbling the amazing assortment of cheese's and Organic distilled goods from Southern Oregon and watching with new eyes the absolute stunning Wallowa Mountains from yet another gorgeous OBBG inn in Eastern Oregon!
Whew...did we cover it all? Maybe so, but have you? Check us out...over and over again! You know you love it HERE!
Thanks Mary for the visit and to you too Tilly, you are a precious dog! And Deanna...Sakura Ridge is breathtaking and I will sleep like a baby tonight! Thanks!
