Hood River Pear Festival – Part 4

From Kiyokawa Family Orchards’ we race back down the valley to the Apple Valley Country Store.  They have jams and jellies that are sooo good!  We also enjoy the tire swing in the front area.

By this time our car is loaded with pears and peaches as well as tomatoes, butternut squash and a variety of other vegetables.  We are tired.  We are hungry for some ……Chinese food.   And boy did we hit the jackpot at…the China Gorge restaurant.   Just off I-84, the China Gorge is owned and operated by Grace Su.  The restaurant has been there since the late 70’s.  The food is the best you can get outside of San Francisco!  It truly is that good!
