Hi, my name's Dan and I'm from Cornwall in the UK.
I'm travelling to the states in June, I am flying to Seattle and then driving to San Francisco for the first part of my trip. I have come up with a long list of places to visit...after spending the first three nights in Seattle (visiting Vancouver and whale watching) my plans so far are as follows.
Day One: Olympic National Park, camping at Kalaloch
Day Two: Continue through the park to Mt Rainer
Day Three: Mt St Helen's, camping at Cannon Beach
Day Four: Drive down the coast to Bandon area
Day Five: Visit Crater Lake and camp
Day Six: Head back to the coast and camp (possibly near Redwood National Park)
Day Seven: Drive to San Francisco...hopefully with time to see the Redwoods on the way.
Before anyone says I know this is pushing things time wise and it will mean that I will only be getting a brief look at a lot of these places but I guess my thinking is that a quick impression is better than not seeing them at all. I'm not really looking to hike more than short trails as I will not have time. I guess I would just like to know if this is actually feasible based on the fact that I will be travelling by myself and am prepared for some very long days! Plus if anybody has any suggestions of things to see or good campsites in these areas I would be very appreciative.
