    Default Washington and Oregon

    I will be driving through Washington, Oregon and Idaho March 2015. Is there anything I shouldn't miss on this trip. I am also hoping to see the northern lights. Any recommendations on where I should go to see them.

    Welcome to RTA!

    Where are you starting from, where are you returning to, and how many days do you have? What are your interests? Are you prepared to drive through snow and ice?

    Welcome to RTA!

    Northern Lights.....well, I have to say that I lived in Alaska for 2 years and only once got to see them (too many clouds). They are rarely seen in the Lower 48.

    I'd also have the same questions for you that GLC has --

    I agree with others. We need to have a better idea of your interest. We could fill pages with sites to see in all 3 states. As for the Northern Lights, I can only speak for Western Washington. Rare, very, very rare! As a kid growing up in the 50's we could occasionally see them. As cities grew more and more light shines up into the sky making it almost impossible to see them any more.
