04-22-17 - The sun is trying to shine this morning as it slowly warms up. Sections of lower valley orchards are in full bloom with more blossoms starting to show on the cherry, apple, and pear trees nearer Odell. Bees are buzzing among the blossoms. With the white contrasts of Mt Hood and Mt Adams in the background, the upcoming full blossoms will create spectacular photo opportunities!

The Hood River County Fruit Loop is just an hour away from Oregon's largest city, Portland. Located in the national scenic area called the Columbia River Gorge, and the nation's largest pear-growing region, this is one of the few places that offers the complete experience of growing, producing, and then enjoying fruit and wine.
Fruit Loop members invite you to enjoy a self-guided tour of our Fruit Loop Stands along a scenic 35-mile loop in the Hood River Valley. Need directions to a particular stand? Click here to go to our Maps page.
