We are visiting family in Boise in early June and , after staying with them until June 9th, are planning to drive across to the Oregon coast (hopefully via Crater Lake if snow isn't too bad) and then up the coast to Seattle where we have to arrive by the afternoon of June 14th.
I am comfortable about driving in America (including long distances) but would be grateful of any advice on :
*Is our plan to do Boise to Crater Lake in one day doable? Wanted to get this bit done in shortest time as I understand that East Oregon isn't particularly scenic.
*Before picking up the 101 on the Oregon coast is it better to head north up Hwy 5 for a while before cutting across to the coast? There seem to be lots of "recreational sites" along the coast route so I guess that it's pretty slow going on the 101.
* Any particular places we should try and spend some time at on the coast?
This is a new area of the country for us so any advice would be very helpful
