DescriptionThe neighboring communities of Bingen and White Salmon, opposite Hood River, Oregon, overlook the Columbia River south of Mount Adams. The setting reminded early German settlers of the Rhine River Valley, and they named the community for Bingen-on-the-Rhine. Orchards on the bench lands above the river produce peaches, apples, cherries and pears. Several wineries in the vicinity offer tastings.
