Suggestions for Attractions in WA, OR, ID, and MT

We are signed up for a trip to Alaska next Summer. At the end of the tour we'll go on our own seeing a bit more in the US as we head home to New England. Not sure what to do and see in the states we will be driving through as we head east. So I'm hoping others who have good knowledge of the states listed might put their two cents in and help us decide. Thank you in advance.

It might help folks to know what states you will be traveling through.

My gad, you could spend the entire summer out west and not see it all. Mt Rainer NP, Olympic Penisular, all of the Oregon coast, Crater Lake, Mt St Helens, Historic Timberline lodge. Most of the high desert region of central Oregon, Yellowstone, Mt Rushmore, Grand Tetons. There are at least two months worth of sites for you to see.

We will have about 1 1/2 to 2 months so it would be the top picks of WA, OR, ID and MT. We plan on seeing Yelliwstone and Grand Tetons before meeting up and heading to AK.

You want to do the Oregon coast north to south, then at Crecent City back into Oregon. Stop at Oregon caves, then up to Crater Lake. After Crater Lake east to US97 north stop and visit me at LaPine state park. Were camp hosting the north loop in June,July. If you get reservations pick middle loop. Its the best! South is good too, just a bit more crowded. North loop is water 20A electric only. More for tenters. There is several days of things to see and do around LaPine if you get there. From here you can contunie north on 97 to I90 and into Seattle, or cross over MtHood on US26 into Portland and I5 north to visit MtSt Helens.

If you get to northern WA by July, don't forget the beautiful Lavender Festival in Squim WA

If you make it to Astoria, at the mouth of the Columbia River, The Maritime Museum is definitely a must-see.
