  1. Default Minneapolis, MN to Portland, OR in November (with dog)

    Looking for some ideas for a trip early November from Minneapolis to Portland. We have a dog that we would like to take along. We would like to camp if possible.

    Did anyone do this route?

    Any ideas?

    Default Either Way

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    There are a couple of good routes between Minneapolis and Portland, so if this is a round trip, you could do both, otherwise you'll have to choose. The northern most of the two basically follows I-94 across Minnesota and North Dakota by Theodore Roosevelt National Park with the option to continue west from Glendive on MT-200 to Great Falls and then up US-89 to US-2 and west through Glacier National Park to join I-90 at Coeur d'Alene. US-395 from Ritzville to Kennewick puts you on I-84 for the final run down the Columbia River Gorge to Portland.

    The other route would have you heading southwest on US-168/MN-60 through Mankato to I-90 west to the sights of western South Dakota, the Badlands, Mount Rushmore and Devils Tower in eastern Wyoming and then perhaps staying on US-14 to Yellowstone and US-20 to Idaho Falls and I-15/I86 to I-84.

    Either route is easily 3½ to 4 days one way plus however much time you want to devote to stops. And oif course you can mix and match teh two routes.
