Driving along the Fruit Loop

So . . . . for this week’s sign that the apocalypse might actually be upon us:  I have added a post to this blog!  Unbelievable!  It’s a miracle!  Is the world coming to an end?  I know, I know.  I had all those thoughts too.  But it couldn’t be helped!  I said I would put some pictures up on the blog, so here we are.  I know it’s high time this crazy blog got cranked up again anyway.  So . . . . here we go!

Today we drove around the Hood River, Oregon Fruit Loop.  No, it is not a piece of cereal or some kind of insanity ritual.  It’s actually a stretch of highway around the town of Hood River that directs you to all kinds of orchards, farms, shops, and fruit stands.  There’s no better time than the autumn season to visit these places because of the delicious ripe apples and pears and the beautiful fall colors all around.

The kids and I did a few broadcasts on my newest smartphone app, Periscope, from most of our stops.  But there was one orchard that just didn’t have enough cell coverage to do that (which isn’t necessarily a bad thing).  So I promised that I would put some pictures from that stop right here on the poorly neglected blog.

Get out there and enjoy this wonderful season!

  1. Beautiful day for this adventure! Thanks for the fellowship and fun at Friday’s Fun Fest, too. These Hood River apples might be almost as good as the one from Yakima Valley. Love to all of you. . .
