Wordless Wednesday - New Hood River Wildfire
 
A new wildfire started just outside Hood River last night, along Highway 84 and has grown to over 50 acres. The fire is on very steep terrain making an air assault necessary. Wednesday afternoon, all outdoor school sports were cancelled due to poor air quality throughout the entire Hood River Valley. Besides thick smoke which seems stuck in the valley, ash is floating through the air. My asthma is certainly not enjoying the smoke as I wheeze my way through the afternoon. I took this shot this morning along Highway 84. It … (8 comments)

Speechless Sunday - Early Morning on the Farm, Hood River, Oregon
 
I took this photo from one of our new listings, just off Highway 35, about five miles south of Hood River. It was pretty early and I was shooting into the sun so it's a little dark, but I still love the iconic American scene. The mountains behind the barn almost disappear in the smoke from the Husum, WA wildfire still burning across the river.

Friday's Foto - Football Friday!
 
The youth football season is off and running with our older son, Sam's, first game of the year last night. Hood River and Wyeast Middle Schools join together on one team. His 8th grade team won, 20 to 14, against a team they lost to last year, 60 to 0. What a testament to hard work and perserverance! Keep it up, Hood River!

Tamanawas! Paradise Found, Right on Mt. Hood
 
Mel and our boys made their annual trip to Tamanawas Falls yesterday. This is one of those absolute must sees if you're in the area... the trail is the true essence and glory of Oregon, much as it must have first appeared to explorers more than a hundred years ago. It's located just off Highway 35, about 40 miles south of Hood River, just 5 miles north of Mt. Hood Meadows Ski Resort.
It's two miles, each way, but it's rated as "easy", as the incline is not too steep and the trail is … (6 comments)

Friday's Foto - Summer Afternoon on the Hood River
Yes, this is the very river that the town of Hood River, Oregon is named after. It flows from Mt. Hood, down the mountain and empties into the great Columbia River. I took this picture at Tucker Park just off the Dee Highway, about 10 minutes south of the town of Hood River.

Speechless Sunday - Youth Football Jamboree... Let the Season Begin!
 
Yesterday, our 11 year old, Ben, played for Hood River in The Dalles, Oregon in his football jamboree, the official kick-off of the 2012 football season. Youth tackle football is vastly popular in the Columbia River Gorge, starting in the 3rd grade. It's such a great community experience. This photo is the first play of the first game on which Hood River scored its first touchdown against Goldendale. Go Hood River!

Incredible Mexican Food in Hood River... Visit The Crazy Pepper!
 
The Crazy Pepper Cantina & Mexican Restaurant is one of our favorite Mexican restaurants in Hood River! We just ate there last night and I already want to go again! It has the typical fare that you'd expect from an authentic Mexican restaurant, but they kick it up a step. Everything is supremely fresh, starting with my very favorite salsa ever, warm, fresh baked tortilla chips then a huge variety of dishes.
I had a pork chimichanga which was absolutely to die for. My mom had the chili verde, … (7 comments)

Speechless Sunday - Chilling at Lake Laurence
 
Lake Laurence is a gorgeous, man-made lake on Mt. Hood in Northwest Oregon, just moments from the small town of Parkdale. We love to head there on warm summer days... soak up some sun, swim or in our boys' case, hunt for crawdads. It's a flawless, serene setting of green water surrounded by towering pines.
