Or maybe Astoria.

Board over windshield says "Portland - The Dalles", I'm going with west hills, doesn't look like TD! Notice the stack of cordwood in background? That'd have to be a healthy boiler to eat those!

There is a 1930 Columbia Gorge System Motor Coach Service pamphlet viewable online. The coach on the front looks just like this one. It advertises service between Portland and Spokane. In 1929 they ran a bus service to Salt Lake City and purchased 15 new motor stages. W. T. Crawford was the president. The company merged with Pickwick-Greyhound and by 1932 the Columbia Gorge name ceased to exist.
The bus line was used as an advertisement for Goodyear tires.
I looked at some pictures of Pierce Arrow motor coaches. I don't know if that is what this is??

Quite the impressive uniform the driver has. Jodhopers (not certain that is the correct spelling.) They were very popular pants during that time frame. Would be interesting to know what color the jacket was.
I suppose that "boot" in the rear is for luggage?
I tend to agree that this just doesn't look like Hood River.
