Mount Hood Scenic Loop

If you’re in the mood to go road tripping, then the Mount Hood Scenic Loop should be an essential destination. The trip starts in Portland, taking you down Interstate 84 along the Columbia River, which skirts the route to the north with Mount Hood itself viewable to the south. Head right on State Route 35 and you’ll circle around to the south of Mount Hood, eventually coming to State Route 26, which will lead you back to Portland. The 146-mile trip, all of it tree lined and packed with scenic vistas, provides plenty of places to pull off and camp, picnic, eat at a restaurant, or go for a hike. Plan your trip here.  Peak Viewing Times: 3rd and 4th Weeks of October.

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1919, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
