  1. Default LA to Seattle for Brits

    Hi All,

    I suspect this has been asked many times before but we (my wife and i) are planning a trip from Lo Angeles to Seattle starting February 14th this year in LA. We have 14 days for the trip. I've driven the LA to San Francisco Leg a couple of times and want to re visit Hearst Castle and Monterey peninsula. Other than that it's an open book but wild and woolly prefered.

    Thanks,

    John

    Yep, there have been a few threads started on this subject. Here is a quick overview of some of them,
    but wild and woolly prefered.
    Does this mean hiking, climbing or something rural or more risky? And welcome to the Great American RoadTrip Forum!

    It turns out that travel between San Francisco and Las Vegas is the #1 most made query, but there are still some good suggestions for you in here.

    Another point of interest along this road, is a turn off at Fortuna, to Cape Mendocino - the most westerly point of the 48 States.

    Not only the Cape, but the getting there, could easily be classified as 'wild and woolly'.

    Default And I forgot this memorable spot

    Roadie (Alvin) captured one of the best photos of this place -- you need to stop and marvel too -- the only place on the West coast where a waterfall falls directly into the surf.

    Wild and Wooly -- I love Point Reyes -- during periods of winter storms I have seen larger waves (rip currents) heading out to sea than those landing on the beach!
