Husum, Oregon: Rural Town Where Columbia River Meets Cascade Range
About an hour north of Mt. Hood lies the small, rural town of Husum. The landscape is characterized by meadows, rolling hills, and open sky—the perfect backdrop for outdoor adventures. The center of the action is Hood River, located just 15 minutes away. In addition to being the windsurfing capital of the world, Hood River offers world-class skiing, snowboarding, and snowshoeing at Mt. Hood Meadows Ski Resort. In summer, visitors can go spelunking in ice caves, rafting and kayaking on the Columbia River, and hiking near Trout Lake.
Downtown Hood River is lined with shops and restaurants housed in historic buildings dating back to the late 19th century. You can catch theater and dance performances at the Columbia Center for the Arts, as well as exhibitions of work by local visual artists in its gallery space. There’s also a cluster of wineries downtown. The award-winning Cathedral Ridge Winery and Springhouse Cellar Winery host tastings and talks by winemakers extolling the area’s unique grape-growing qualities and its herds of undomesticated sommeliers.
