3 friends and I want to travel through some of the National Parks in Northern Cali, Oregon, and maybe into Washington. I have several questions and hope someone can help me. First of all, when we did this before, we rented a beautiful cabin not far from the National Park ( Utah) ., We want to do the same this year. Can anyone suggest a cabin near any of the parks in the states I mentioned? We were thinking : Redwoods, Crater Lake, Mount St Helens /Rainier...maybe even Olympic. I know Im not being specific here, but if anyone can help me, I'd really appreciate it.
Second question: Can someone who has been to the area make recommendations on what we should see? Which parks are the best? Is Cascades worth the trip that far north? Or can we see the same mountain scenery and hike similar trails somewhere else? Thanks so much!
