Cities: Hood River

On October 29, 1792, WR Broughton and his men of the Vancouver Expedition discovered and named Mt. Hood, in honor of Lord Hood of British Admiralty. The Lewis and Clark Expedition paved the way and named the glacial stream now known as the Hood River. Followed by Lewis and Clark were trappers, fur traders, and pioneer settlers.

Hood River has a ton of things to do and we started the Hood River BnB so more people would be able to experience all the great activities the Gorge has to offer.
