We're heading to Seattle on Friday and flying back from San Diego on Saturday 12th September so have two glorious weeks to fill.
We've put our heads together and come up with a rough idea of what we want to see and it goes like this (in approximate order).
From Seattle, we'll head to Mount Rainer and drive around for a day heading west back to Interstate 5. From there we'll take in Mount St. Helens and then drive onwards to Portland and maybe take a side excursion up the Colombia River Gorge.
From Portland, we'll head coastwards to Tillamook and stick to the coast through Oregon, before heading inland to Crater Lake (possibly via Oregon Caves).
From there it will be down to Lassen Volcanic and then back to the coast to Redwood National Park and then hauling it down the coast to San Francisco.
The idea will then be to take Highway 1, past Monterey and Carmel and then down the coast past Big Sur.
Before hitting LA, we want to head inland to try and take in Kings Canyon, Sequoia and Yosemite before heading to Vegas.
Then finally, on to San Diego via Joshua Tree.
It does seem a lot and the distances are going to be pretty hideous on some days but what do people think?
