Hood River, I’m a fan

This weekend John surprised me, kind of. We had set aside this weekend to get away and spend a few days up at Mt. Hood snow-shoeing, snowboarding, and just relaxing. He arranged the accommodation and kept it a secret even dropping false hints to throw me off. The end result was a perfect retreat at the historic Hood River Hotel, located at the east edge of downtown Hood River. After a weekend of checking out the town, eating at three delicious restaurants (6th Street Bistro& Loft, Columbia Gorge Hotel, and Big Horse Brew Pub), stumbling upon a gorgeous ridge hike that gave us stunning views of the Hood River Valley and Mt. Hood (Oak Ridge Trail), and having fast and easy access to Mt. Hood Meadows, I could confidently say, “Hood River, I’m a fan!” In between all the active relaxing we did, we enjoyed watching the last days of the 2010 Winter Olympic Games and soaking in the hotel’s jacuzzi tub each evening to loosen our tired muscles. We came home relaxed and a little sore and so thankful to have had the chance to get away for a few days.
