Spring Brings an Explosion of Blossoms and Color to the Hood River Valley
Spring Brings an Explosion of Blossoms and Color to the Hood River Valley, Old Parkdale Inn

By Mary Pellegrini

The peach, cherry, apple and pear trees in the Hood River valley explode in a harmony of vibrant pink and white flowers. Starting at lower elevations around the town of Hood River they move in a cascading ripple up the Hood River Valley, creating a patchwork of color. Here in the Upper Hood River Valley we’ll be in full blossom in another week or so.

Spring Brings an Explosion of Blossoms and Color to the Hood River Valley, Old Parkdale Inn Celebrate Blossom Time now through mid may. Come visit and enjoy family-friendly farm events, craft shows, culinary treats, wine and cider tasting.

One of the best ways to enjoy Blossom Time is to drive the Hood River County Fruit Loop, a gorgeous 35-mile drive that follows the county’s Scenic Tour Route and passes the valley’s plethora of orchards, wineries, and farms.
