Hi to TA community!
We are heading for a honeymoon 3 weeks roadtrip to West Coast and North western part of the US. We have approximate itinerary, but I would really appreciate your help on how long we should dedicate to each place: The plan is:
From San Francisco (already been there, so just from airport immediately leave the city) to Redwood (2) - along the coast heading north - (then option 1 - Lassen NP) - detour to Crater Lake (1) NP - return to coast - Portland (2) - Mt. Rainier (1) - Seattle (2) - Olympic NP (2) - Vancouver (2), Canada - North Cascades NP (2) - Glacier NP (3) - Yellowstone NP (3) - Denver (we have friends there so that is the final destination). In brackets is the number of days for each place.
As you have guessed, we are mostly interested in hiking in the National Parks, doing day hikes, camping. But want to see some cities as well, just for change :-) We have plenty to see for so little time. We already had to sacrifice Mt. St. Helens, probably not enough time for Lassen NP nor Crater Lake NP. Or are they really worth visiting?
Any of your comments and advice would really help us, thank you very much in advance!
