We are planning a 2 1/2 week trip to these two national parks. We will be camping outside the two parks. What should we not miss, both inside and outside the parks? (I do have guidebooks, but would love to get firsthand advice.)
(We will drive from the Willamette Valley in Oregon north to the Mt. Rainier area first, spend a week, then move on to Olympia NP)
Thanks for any thoughts.
