It was one of the great days in The Dalles when we stopped by the Farmer's Market this morning, sunny and warm but not hot and NO WIND! We'd just finished a wonderful walk along the river on Riverfront Trail and decided to see what the market was offering. Lots of fresh fruits and vegetables along with farm fresh eggs and straight from the farm lamb, chicken an beef. There were interesting crafts too as well as fresh baked goods. You can visit the Farmer's Market every Saturday morning this summer from 8AM to 1PM in the City Park at 5th and Union Streets.
Today is also the kickoff for 10 days of activities for Fort Dalles Rodeo so there were lots of people out and about. Don't miss Jammin' July downtown this evening starting at 5pm. Lots of music, crafts and food there too!
Maybe we'll see you there,
Not familiar with The Dalles? The Dalles, Oregon is a small rural town steeped in history, 80 miles East of Portland in the Columbia River Gorge. It has been a meeting place for native tribes of the Northwest for over 10,000 years. Lewis & Clark camped here and it is on the Oregon Trail. The Dalles sits right on the Columbia River, the border between Oregon and Washington, 20 miles East of Hood River, one of the windsurfing/kiteboarding capitals of the world. We're one to 3 hours away from mountain climbing on Mt. Hood, white-water rafting on the Deschutes River, shopping and dining in Portland or walking the Pacific Coast Beaches. Google has a large data center here, next to the Columbia River to access its cooling water supply. Real Estate in The Dalles is scenic and varied.
