Directions to Plein Air sites

All directions assume one knows how to reach Hood River, Oregon.

1) Thursday Aug 28 - The Gorge White House
From the intersection near I-84’s Exit 64 (a right off the ramp, curvy road, straight through next stop sign), take Hwy. 35 (on the east side of town) south 4 miles. It is on the left. If you reach the Pine Grove Store and a gas station at a blinking yellow light, you missed it.

2) Friday Aug 29 - Maryhill Museum Note: Not Maryhill Winery as previously stated
Maryhill is 47 miles from Hood River. Two options:
Take I-84 east to I-97; wind up the hill to SR14. Take a left (heading west); Maryhill is the enormous concrete mansion on the left.
-or-
Take I-84 east and cross the Columbia River using the Hood River Bridge (Exit 64) or the I-197 bridge on the far end of The Dalles. Drive north to SR14; take a right and continue east until you see aforementioned mansion (you will pass Maryhill Winery).

3) Saturday Aug 30 - Western Antique Aeroplane & Automobile Museum
From I-84’s Exit 62, take a right and another, immediate, right on Country Club Road. Follow it until it hits a T (it’s a few miles); take a left on Barrett Drive. Go through two stop signs (the second is “Windmaster Corner,” after which you will be on Tucker Road); the museum is on the same property as the airport, on the right.

4) Sunday Aug 31 - Sakura Ridge Bed & Breakfast
From I-84’s Exit 62, take a right and another, immediate, right on Country Club Road. Follow it until it hits a T (it’s a few miles); take a right on Barrett Drive, a left on Sunset Road and a right on York Hill Drive (you’re basically skirting property lines with the zig-zagging). At the point that York Hill Drive is declared a dead end, keep going. The road will become gravel; go through the main gate and the orchard.

If you are coming to Sakura Ridge from the other direction on Oak Street, you will be taking a left on to Country Club Road.

5) Monday Sept 1 - Downtown Hood River
Oak Street is the main drag downtown, but you can paint anywhere. There are a couple of nice parks downtown too. Today is the deadline to turn in paintings to the art center by 5pm.
