Hi all. I am new to this site and forum. What is the best driving route from Dallas, TX to Olympia, WA this time of year? I am renting a full size car today (one way) and will be traveling with 1 other driver and an 8 year old. We plan to leave around noon today or 5am tomorrow morn.
Planning 1 overnight stay the first day; 2 if needed. What/where are some good options for lodging? We have always flown to Washington so this will be the first time driving and unfortunately driving is the only option and the trip a must.
Of course, I am looking for the best path to help minimize hazardous driving conditions (for me...snowy/icy roads and mountain passes). Yesterday, I did look at transportation cams (www.cotrip.org) and noticed that New Mexico/Raton Pass-Walsenburg @ I25, @ I70@Vail pass, and Johnson/Eisenhower tunnel show to have icy patches for several miles. I’ve noticed I-25 & I-70 in route suggestions in several threads for Dallas to Seattle trips on the internet.
Please Help!Suggestions/recommendations/advice is GREATLY appreciated. Thank You! Meemee
