The Columbia Gorge and Mount Hood region of Oregon is known for sweeping greenery and rolling hills. It contains the largest designated National Scenic Area, with stunning views of the Columbia River as it cuts through the Cascade Mountains.
The unique geography creates an airflow unlike any other, helping make Hood River the windsurfing capital of the world. Mt. Hood’s six ski areas enjoy the longest ski season in the nation, and when the weather’s nice, the region has over 90 waterfalls to explore. Though the effects of the 2017 Eagle Creek Fire can still be felt in the area, the communities there still thrive. Purchase some cannabis from a dispensary in Columbia Gorge and set off for high adventure.
