today we went driving along the columbia river and crossed a bridge that led us to hood river, washington/oregon. then eventually found another bridge that led us enroute to mt. hood (about 2 hours away from portland) where we made more than enough stops enjoying the beautiful scenery. for a little while i though i was in france because there were lavender fields, cherry orchards and every landscape you could imagine in just one area!
we went to downtown portland yesterday and it was awesome but i can’t say it was my favorite part. i’m definitely falling in love with the surrounding areas but i’m not sure i want to be in the center of it all. i mean, these photos say a lot, right?!
