The Western Antique Aeroplane & Automobile Museum
It’s late tonight, so we’re just going to keep in simple and make sure we get a post in for the 2012 Blogathon.
Thanks to a Living Social deal, we hung out yesterday afternoon at the Columbia Gorge Wine and Pear Festival in Hood River at the Western Antique Aeroplane & Automobile Museum. It’s kind of a tucked-away place, but it’s one worth checking out. Not only does the museum have an incredible view of Mount Hood, but it also has an impressive collection of old airplanes, automobiles and motorcycles, most if not all of which are in functioning order and get used somewhat regularly. Throw in some great wines from wineries like Marchesi, Phelps Creek and Viento, a little live music, and some bits for the kids, and you’ve got the makings for a great afternoon — and a geat story.
