5 Reasons We Love Geocaching in Oregon

Geocaching in Oregon is nothing new as the game started here.  On May 3, 2020, this game, once known as the “Great American GPS Stash Hunt’, celebrates its 20th birthday with now over 3 million hides world wide.  A little history lesson here, the full version can be read on the Geocaching.com website where I pulled this information.

  1. You’ll find that discovery, exploration and adventure still exist in the real-world. It gets you out and about!
  2.  It’s a great way to stay healthy while having fun
  3.  Many of our innkeepers are cachers so you’ll experience new places from a local
  4.  Discover places you never knew existed
  5. You can learn fun facts about Planet Earth

And 5 reasons to Geocache as the Seasons change

  1. Trails are less traveled
  2. There may be more affordable travel options
  3. Enjoy the View: As the seasons transition temperatures can vary and lead to some stunning landscapes
  4. The changing weather means that you may have a sneak peek of summer sunshine in spring, or could indulge in ski or snowshoe caching in autumn!
  5.  A chance to get some lower elevation caches

Three Sleeps

Three Sleeps Vineyards Bed and Breakfast

Adams view.  Only 15 mins from the heart of the Columbia River Gorge and Hood River you’ll feel like you are miles from anywhere. Both rooms have private baths and patios and their own entrances.

When the Lewis and Clark Corps of Discovery Expedition traveled through the area in 1805 they asked the local Native Americans how far it was to the Great Pacific ocean.  The answer, as you’ve guessed, was “Three Sleeps”.  The Three Sleeps Vineyard is the source of Dominio IV’s Tempranillo, Syrah and Viognier grapes and is farmed organically and biodynamically.

Each well appointed room at Three Sleeps B&B has a private entrance, bath and cozy seating area.  Relax on your patio and enjoy the view of the vineyard, the world famous cherry orchards and Mt. Adams in the background.  Both rooms also feature satellite TV with HBO, a DVD and wireless internet.
