Historic Hood River
“Mitchell Point Villa”
Remember the Parker’s log home at “Sonny?” Here is it after the Columbia River Highway started brings lots of folks through the front yard. Note the cabins, the gas station, and the “campground”(I assume it’s the flat spot below the house). The trellis is still there.
This spot was immediately west of the Mitchell Point Tunnel entrance. Today there is a restroom, parking area, and trailhead at this spot. In the next few years the Columbia River Highway State Trail will approach this spot from the west on an existing piece of the original highway still in the woods south of the freeway.
Tomorrow I’ll show this spot a couple of years later.
