We plan to leave Berkeley after work and head north. We want fast one way and scenic the other. We must spend 2-3 days in Portland and want to spend a least 2 in Seattle. We will have our nearly three year old with us and 10 days for the trip. We'd love route suggestions and great things to do on the way and in the two cities. We've heard of yurt and cabin camping on the Oregon coast. Has any one done this? Are there places on the way to Portland? We are big campers, but don't want to bring everything this trip, but would love to stay cheaply and in scenic surroundings with great outdoor adventures on the way.
Anyone have some suggestions for us?
