Visit a local orchard when the apples are in season. Some orchards will let you come pick your very own produce. Take the kids, a few baskets and start getting in those trees. You’ll have a great time while getting your daily supplement of fruits.
If you’ve had your fair share of apples and want something else to pick, there are a few places to pick pumpkins and pears this season.
The leaves are turning this time of year. Take a drive through Hood River Valley to witness the beautiful event. There are miles of trees turning colors. Roll down the windows, grab a camera and start taking pictures of the breathtaking scenes you’ll come across in nature’s playground.
