Hi everyone! I was so excited to stumble upon this site, it is just what I need as I plan our first trip to the Pacific NW.
On board: Me, Husband, and 6 year old daughter. All adventurous...we love hiking, geotracking, and animal watching, exploring small towns, you know the sort!
When: Early August
OK, I'm having trouble with the last leg of our trip. (The first leg is Portland to Humbolt County, CA and back). Then we are going to take just a few days to drive from Portland to Seattle to visit a friend and also take a cruise to the San Juan Islands. We have from Sunday late afternoon-Wednesday night when we need to check into the hotel in Portland in order to fly back home to Missouri on Thursday.) I know that's not much time. We can leave Portland around 1pm Sunday.
What I DO know:
Monday or Tuesday we'd like to take a cruise to the San Juan Islands.
And we need to be in Portland by Wednesday night to sleep near the airport.
Will be lodging with our friends in Seattle, and would like to stay one or two nights with them.
Please help! I know there are literally DAYS of sights that we could see, but we won't have the time this trip. How can we make the most of the time we do have? Which way up? Which way back? And should we make use of the Infinity Loop? We'd love to see some waterfalls and mountains. And we will have spent the week prior driving along the Oregon Coast.
SHOW ME the way
