Hood River is a beautiful area year round, but the fall colors make the area especially beautiful. When we visited the area last October we felt pretty lucky we had hit the colors at their peak. I spent a couple trips up on the eastern edge of the Hood River Valley trying to find a suitable place to shoot a panorama. Finally I found what I thought to be the perfect shot, orchards, trees the valley and beautiful Mt Hood in the distance. I shot alot of photos that day, and feel this was the best.
