Columbia River Gorge

The Columbia River Gorge, a 75-mile canyon through the Cascades, is a broad, picturesque river with water-controlling dams.

Reviewed By DonCesar - Nuremberg, Germany

Nice area with very scenic waterfalls, hills and the river. There are yours or you can always just rent a car and drive there since it's pretty straight forward.

Dog Mountain Trail

Reviewed By Jack B - San Diego, California

Relatively short hike, a little steep and rough in places with nice views from the top - you can see Mt. Hood, Mt. St. Helens and Mt. Adams. Recommend taking the 'easy' trail up - you get better views, and take the Augspurger Trail down - it is a little longer but much smoother and easier on your knees. You can enjoy looking around on Augspurger Trail as you don't have to focus so much on your footing.

Lots of wildflowers (April 8) along the trail.

While you are in the neighborhood, swing up to Dog Creek Falls - a mile or so north, and then consider hiking Wind Mountain - a mile or two south. The three make for a great day, 10 miles and 3820' of climbing.

There are restrooms at the start of Dog Mountain Trail.

Requires NW Forest Pass or $5 to park.

Wonderful tour and an excellent guide. Mack gave us a great deal of excellent information and sea stories! Highly recommended.Thank you for reviewing. We have often found truth can be stranger than fiction and our collection has lots of stories to tell. We usual have several guides circulating on our display floor to share these stories or answer any questions from our visitors.

We booked the 3 day basic white water kayaking course which stressed small groups (max 4:1 customers to guides) and a flexible approach based on the speed that the group acquires the skills. We already had flat water kayaking experience but planned our holiday around this course to give us some white water kayaking skills.

However after a knock on an activity before the course started, I had to take my partner (also on the course) to have an X-Ray (to get an all clear) and although we'd only be a little late into the first day (which was planned to cover skills we already had), we were excluded from the entire 3 days and, of course, no refund. While Wet Planet can presumably justify this extreme behaviour in their T&C's, I found the removal from a 3 day course for less than 90 minute's absence, a completely unnecessary over reaction and thus warn other customers to be wary of dealing with them in case the unexpected happens to them.

Antiques and Oddities

Reviewed By Hazel S - Corvallis, Oregon

Friends had talked about this antique store and recommended it highly so we planned a short road trip to see for ourselves. Although all of the other antique/collectible/thrift shops in the small town were closed mid-week, this large shop was open and busy. One would need at least an hour or more to just walk thru the shop. The array of items is vast--from European antiques (containers full) to coins, collectibles, furniture. Scattered among it are oddities. It's almost like a mixed up museum.

The young woman in charge was very helpful and knew pretty much what was on hand and where to find it. When I expressed interest in an item, she immediately directed me to other similar items. I found a treasure, reasonably priced, for a Father's Day gift. She also took the time to search thru a group of coins for a specific year.

The gift I purchased was wrapped carefully and packed well.

There are just so many various items, one must check it out for themselves. It may not be the most organized shop, but it's fun to explore.

Marchesi Vineyards

Franco Marchesi's passion for wine began in his hometown of Borgosesia, Peimonte, Italy. As a child he always wondered what it would be like to be a winemaker like his grandfather Achille. After running his own import company specializing in Italian wines for over 20 years, Franco began planting his favorite Northern Italian grapes in Hood River, where the climate and soil are just like Northern Italy. Please come visit, and taste our wines. Salute!

Perfect venue for wine tasting located just outside Hood River. Excellent wines provided by knowledgeable, helpful staff in a patio setting surrounded by active vines.

Glass blowing and fusing studio

Reviewed By weclkt - Washington state

This place is a Washington treasure.

We live nearby and go on Friday nite to watch the teachers and guest artist blow glass. the owners, Robin and Ellen Knoke, could not be any more welcoming and gracias. What a Treat to watch such skill, artistic ability and hard-nose dedication in action.

White Salmon is a great place to visit. It is inchanted from its bell tower to fine shops with things you will never see in the big cities. If you get a chance, treat yourself to a real fine experience.

Reviewed By JulieBandSteveB - Coon Rapids, Minnesota

Not just a vineyard! You pick fruit and flowers depending on the season. A great food truck with wonderful food, pricing 10 to 13 for most items, quick and hot and you can eat anywhere indoors or a great patio area. Wine, ciders and a few local beers 1.00 per taste bad 5 to 6 for a glass/pint. Staff was friendly and very Nice! Growlers, bottles (wine) to go! We enjoyed the pear lemon cider and took some to go!! We would recommend and go back! A great way to spend a few hours kids and adults !
