Last Visit to Hood River: June, 1994

~~~ CITY OF WIND, CITY OF APPLES ~~~

by matseb - last update: Dec 8, 2004

This is not only one a major windsurfing capital but also a nice place to start adventure trips such as white river rafting, hiking, skiing and mountain biking. It is located right next to the majestic Columbia River and nearby the Mount Hood (3.400 m). Hood River lies on a slope towards the River. It name derives from the River itself which is located to the North. The stronges economical factor besides tourism is lumber and fruit orchard (mostly apple). I lived here from August 1st, 1989 to June 1990.

HOT SPRINGS! Carson Mineral Hot Springs Resort   by matseb
 

Description:
We (a male and a female friend) came over here in 1990 for showing me that nice place. Normally it's a small resort but the hot springs themselves are what we were interested in. After paying a tiny user fee we hiked up there. It was very beautiful (complete nature!). There was nobody there at that time so we went naked and took a bath in the very cold ajacent creek. There has been only one hot spring "tub" which fits about 4 persons.

It was a blast and you really should check it out!

Address:
1st Martin Rd., Carson, WA 98610,

Directions:
nearby White Salmon, which is near the Columbia River Bride opposite of Hood River, OR
