I'm going to be doing a photography road trip July 8-18th from San Fran to Vancouver. We've got a lot of the trip sort of mapped out with places to see and microbreweries to drink at.
But I was hoping the wide knowledge of this forum could help me out a bit. What are the "Not so touristy" things we should hit, but still are popular amongst locals? We want to capture everything we can in those 10 days, and obviously the big popular items are on the list (Redwoods, The Dalles, etc) but being from Detroit, our knowledge is limited to the west coast.
Any suggestions are great. or times of the day to see things. Don't be shy, just shout them out.
Freebee from my homecity: If you ever come to Detroit (you won't get shot), check out Slows BBQ then hit the Detroit Institute of Arts. (One of the top 5 in the nation).
