mt-hood-autumnThe air is crisp, the autumnal colors are setting in, and the smell of ripe apples fills the air. Bountiful Mt. Hood Territory is ready to be experienced. 

Day 1:

Watch nature paint rusty reds, golden yellows, and bright oranges across the landscape at Jonsrud Viewpoint in Sandy. From here you get one of the best views of Mt. Hood and the Sandy River Valley. Pick up coffee and freshly baked pastries as you peruse the local art gallery at Ant Farm Cafe and Bakery. Garden connoisseurs and art appreciators alike will enjoy a visit to nearby Red Pig Garden Tools where they can admire owner Bob Denman's blacksmithing handiwork.

Next, head to Liepold Farms for their annual Fall Festival. Get lost in their 5-acre corn maze, pick armfuls of pumpkins, and savor local eats and beverages leaving you full and happy. Wind down the day with a stay at the newly renovated Crowne Plaza Portland-Lake Oswego. Don't miss the opportunity for an evening walk through Lake Oswego's Gallery without Walls.

Day 2:

After a locally sourced breakfast at Babica Hen Cafe, visit the place where your meals are sourced. Started in 1906, Fiala Farms offers u-pick flowers, fruits, and veggies. Stop at Fir Point Farms & Country Grains for some of the best deli sandwiches in The Territory. After lunch, take selfies with the tree climbing goats and embark on some of the nearby scenic nature trails. You must be parched now. Swing around to St. Josefs Winery. Satiate your thirst with a dry Pinot noir or sweet Gewurztraminer. Say hi to owners Josef and Lilli and ask them about their annual grape-stomping festival. Watch the sunset over the rural landscape with your new furry alpaca friends at Alpacas at Marquam Hill Ranch.

Want to stay longer? Plan your visit around some of The Territory's many Fall Festivals like at Bushue's Family Farm or the Pumpkin Run at Flower Farmer and Phoenix & Holly Railroad.
