Oregon is one of the coolest states ever (not that I’m biased or anything) and is the place that I will always call home. We drove an hour east to a little town called Hood River because I was on the hunt for the popular picturesque scene of the famous Mt. Hood sitting behind a field of lavenders.
Well, I’m disappointed to say I didn’t reach that goal BUT I’m still searching!
So instead, we drove through the little town and came across the cutest fruit stand ever with the most beautiful scenery I have ever seen. And let me tell you, you just have to visit this place to understand what I mean because the pictures don’t do it justice!
With that being said, if you’re ever in Oregon or you’re a local and want a little day trip, then this has to be on your list because even the drive to get there is breathtaking.
Hood River Lavender Farm
Don’t let this photo fool you since most of the lavender bushes were picked dry, unfortunately.
I was very hopeful that there would be tall bushes everywhere but I should’ve known that it was toward the end of the season so of course everyone and there grandma picked the place clean 😑.
But they had fields of pear trees that sat across the farm which made for pretty cute pictures too.
Draper Girls Country Farm
This is about a fifteen minute drive past the lavender farm so if you go early in the season it’s totally worth making both stops. This cute fruit stand sold local fruits, and apple orchard that you can pick from, and antique goodies that made for beautiful photos.
Not only that, they also had a flower field with Mt. Hood in the background, a swing that hung from a tree, and BABY GOATS. It was so unexpected that you would never know what all goes on there unless you stopped. And I’m glad we did.
If you’re into all of the things above plus the taste of wine, then you’ll definitely want to take a day trip this way. Along the drive to the lavender farm there were several vineyards that had wine tastings you can pop into.
How awesome is that.
The vineyards gave the area a Mediterranean feel with its high rolling hills that seems endless. It would make you forget you were in Oregon.
So no I didn’t find exactly what I was looking for but I ended up stumbling upon a whole different side of Oregon that made me really appreciate it’s beautiful nature and how cool Mother Nature is.
I love you all and I’ll talk to you soon.
