How About Sandy, Oregon

Sandy, Oregon is one of the major gateways to Mt. Hood. It has about 10,000 folks and is right smack dab in the middle of the old Sam Barlow Trail.

It is located about 20 miles east of Portland on Highway 26 and, a must place to visit if you come to Portland and/or on the way to scenic Mt.Hood to ski or sightsee.

Among other things, Sandy has a first-class historic museum right on the main drag and it is free.

And, after you visit the museum: One place to eat in particular is the "Trout Pub" (Google + Link)! Hey, best Halibut Fish and Chips around and, at a reasonable price. Also, excellent hamburgers, french fries and you name it.

Back to the Sandy Historical Museum. It is a first-class facility. The folks are all volunteers and it was obvious they were excited about the history of their town and, passing on their knowledge to folks like my wife and I.

The first photo here is a huge mural on the side of a building. The rest of the photos are of the historical museum. Enjoy!
