I am moving from DC to Portland and looking for a relatively quick but still enjoyable route. Ideally I will avoid large truck filled freeways and have some great places to stop along the way for quick visits.
My very early working plan is on the google map below. I am thinking a couple days of straight drving to get me to the middle of the country and then some backgrounds and scenery with the Badlands, Rushmore, Yellowstone and Craters of the Moon. Any suggestions on good roads or somewhat random but cool places to stop?
Any and all suggestions are appreciated!
