2020 August Arrive and Drive to Mt. Hood

Summary:

This is a casual drive through the beautiful Mt. Hood National Forest. We will be following the Clackamas River for much of the drive with its beautiful whitewater viewed from your Porsche. Driving distance is about 100+ miles with a return to the start distance of less than 50 miles. 
The drive will start in Oregon City. Arrive early and have breakfast at Shari’s or a Latte at Starbucks. The drive will end on the east side of Mt. Hood at the White River Snow Park.  If you prefer a restaurant for lunch, Government Camp is available on the way back to Portland.  If you prefer a longer way home, Hood River is just north on OR-35 and has plenty of places to find your lunch. Bring your favorite camera for the wonderful photography opportunity (weather permitting, of course) with your Porsche in the foreground and beautiful Mt. Hood in the background.
