How is everyone doing? I've been trying to get ideas on this website for a roadtrip I am taking between 5-19 and 5-24 and it's been really helpful. Thought I'd take a shot at getting specific advice on my trip.
My plan is to leave on 5-19 and stay somewhere (scenic and pretty) on the Oregon coast (or Portland, since it's a Saturday night) that night. On 5-20 our goal is to make it to Mt. St. Helen's by 1-2 pm and stay at Lake Quinalt that evening.
From here our plans get a bit hazy again. On the 21st and 22nd we'd like to explore/hike the best scenery in the area. For example, we would like to hike the next day in Lake Quinalt and maybe make our way up to Cape Flattery. From there, we'd also like to see the Hall of Mosses but we're not sure how to do so. Basically I need a plan for these two days with enough time to make it back to Seattle's waterfront on the evening of the 22nd. Is this possible?
On the 23rd, we'd like to start by experiencing a bit of Seattle in the morning and then making our way out midday (to avoid traffic) to head back to Sac. At that point, we are just going to take the I-5 down to Sacramento because we need to be back in Sac by 1 pm on the 24th.
Last note; we are young and would like to do as much as we can but want to be realistic about our plans as well.
Any advice/thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you and hope you are all having a great weekend.
