    Default A Month on the West Coast

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    One of our Moderators is from the Pacific Northwest and has written extensively over the last couple of years on the wonders of the country between Vancouver and, say, San Francisco. I can't add anything to her wonderful accounts, but I can gather up links to some of the best of them for you:

    Add a Day or Two (Lake Quinault, Hall of Mosses, and other Olympic Peninsula sights
    Enough for Two Months (areas of WA & OR away from the coast)
    Awesome Trip (good overview of mountain areas including MSH, Crater Lake, and the coastal highlights)
    Great Honeymoon (Grand Coulee, MSH, Mr. Rainier, Olympic Peninsula focus)
    Go For It (natural attractions - mainly WA coast, a bit on Oregon coast)
    Yup, It's Worth It (general WA/OR overview)
    You're Gonna Have So Much Fun (Idaho/WA/OR overview)

    Farther south, between San Francisco and Los Angeles, the road of choice is the Pacific Coast Highway (PCH), covered at some length here. If after reading through all that, you still have questions, by all means let us know and we'll see what we can do for you.

    Default Two more "for the pot"

    Here are a couple more field reports that might be useful for anyone planning a trip to/through Oregon:

    Ten days on the North West coast
    Including Californian Redwoods, Trees of Mystery, Bandon, Depoe Bay, Astoria, Mount St Helens and Seattle.

    A Trail around Oregon
    A coast-and-interior trip (with Portland as the starting point) taking in Seaside, Cannon Beach, Oswald West State Park, Tillamook, Columbia River Gorge, Mount Hood, Timberline Lodge, Bend High Desert Museum, Crater Lake, Depoe Bay and the Evergreen Aviation Museum.
