Heading to Bend via hood river from Portland

First trip to Oregon with our 3 20 something kids . I’m heading to Bend and have only 2 or 3 days there - we want to do many things there. Ive been planning to spend a full day traveling and staying in hood river en route so as not to rush thru the gorge. But given the fire, should I spend that first night in Bend instead?

No. Enjoy your drive through the gorge, stopping at Multnomah Falls, then overnight in Hood River.

Thanks for your input .

Is a full one day Columbia river and Mt Hood visit too much to do if followed by the late in day drive to Bend?

It is impossible to guess how much time a Mt. Hood visit would take...everyone's expectations are different...so I will not attempt an answer.
