The Fruit Loop is a scenic 35 mile drive through Hood River Valley with stops along the way at orchards, fruit stands, working farms, wineries, and lavender fields. Over the course of just a few hours, Jay and I took almost 100 pictures. Because I don't want to cram all of them into one long winded (and probably boring) post, I'm breaking it up and will be sharing them with you throughout the week. So if you tire easily of fruit and flower photos, you may want to avoid this place for the next few days.
Our first stop was Pearl's Place, where we began to load up on fruit.
Really, how could we resist these colors?
I used to think that all fruits were created equal, but honestly even the fruit is better up here. I really didn't know what I was missing my whole life by eating dry, mealy apples.
Next stop: The Gorge White House.
