Trying to find days to add to our itinerary in Oregon, and I'm wondering about potentially driving into the Hood River area after dark. The plan is to arrive before sundown, but we all know how that sometimes goes when road-tripping.
This is a mid-July trip with our family (two adults, two pre-teen kids), driving from the Sawtooth region in Idaho and hoping to skip a stop in Boise and gain a day by making it one long car day. Should we shoot for making it all the way to Hood River, or is there a better stopover we should consider? If we were to drive after dark, how concerning would that be in that area?
Thank you for any input.
