The New York Times Travel Blog Meets Columbia Gorge Wineries

It’s always pretty cool, if you’re from a small town, to see the area you were raised in mentioned in a national rag. So, imagine my surprise and  happiness when my Google Alert for White Salmon told me about an article in the New York Times Travel blogs (the Frugal Traveler) where the writer biked from White Salmon to Lyle and did a little wine tasting. Pretty neat.

Then, after I had picked as my base the town of Hood River, Ore., I discovered that bicycles were banned from the bridge over the Columbia. Oops!

Yeah dude, it’s a bit narrow for bicycles. And yes, Syncline does make some fine vino. My wife and I purchased a few bottles there last year, as a matter of fact.
