    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    I think your plan looks pretty good, although I will throw out a warning that spring comes late to the mountains and that could impact some of your stops. Some of the biggest attractions of Lassen NP, for example, really aren't accessible until July.

    You didn't mention a stop at Crater Lake, but that's another place I'd look to include. Again, at the time of your trip, the entire park will not be open, but hopefully at least part of the park should be open at that time and would certainly be worth adding to your itinerary. There are also several scenic drives around Crater Lake that make the detour even more worthwhile.
