I received a great deal of patient planning assistance and wanted to check in on how my road trip itinerary ultimately shook out. We left on June 7.
Day 1 - Left Sacramento, drove through the Redwoods and Ave of the Giants, stayed in Arcata
Day 2 - More Redwoods, Newton Drury Scenic byway, a bit of the Oregon coast, stayed in Coos Bay
Day 3 - Oregon coast, fantastic tidepools in Newport
Day 4/5 - Silver Falls State Park in Salem
Days 6-8 Portland including International Rose Test Garden, amazing! One day driving Columbia River Gorge.
Day 9-10 - Through sad Aberdeen to Lake Quinalt Lodge. Hoh Rain Forest.
Day 11 - Drove through Forks, picnic lunch at La Push and then visited Rialto Beach. Night in Port Angeles.
Day 12 - Hurricane Ridge, shopping in Sequim. Ended up spending a night in Bremerton just because we felt like driving as opposed to spending the night in PA.
Day 13-16 Seattle
Day 17 Drove to visit friends in Boise, stayed for two weeks.
Last week, drove to Glacier National Park, stayed three heavenly nights at Many Glacier Hotel.
Another week in Boise. Ow.
Next week, driving Boise to Moab. One night in Moab, one night in Torrey, two nights in SLC.
Then heading home! It's been amazing.
