Also, I-90 between Montana and Idaho has road construction (long stretch) and narrow lane (1). I-90 thru Spokane to Ritzville, then 395 south to I-84 west takes you along the Columbia River into Portland. Then's there a couple different ways to get to the coast hwy.-101.....almost all the way on 101, you'll be able to see the ocean....lots of small towns, fuels not a problem....truck/human....real pretty stuff! Think 101 ends at San Francisco.

Along the Columbia River gorge (I-84) Vista house and Multnoma Falls would be great stops. Silver Falls state park (20 miles E of Salem) and Crater Lake National Park are both beautiful. Silver Falls has a nice campground and great hiking and biking trails. Along 101, there are the Oregon Coast aquarium and the Hatfield Marine Science Center. Both of these are in Newport. South Beach and Beverly Beach state parks are in the Newport area, S. Beach just south of the aquariums, Beverly Beach is ~20 or so miles north. The state park campgrounds fill up fast, I second the suggestion to reserve early.

I also agree that you have a very aggressive schedule and are not going to have time to do much more than drive by many of the "must see" things.

I forgot all about Crater Lake National Park,,,,a must see.....just like Vista House and Multnomah Falls on Columbia River Gorge. You can picnic at the base of the falls. Very romantic if you want to score points with your wife.

While we want to see as much as possible, I think we will pick from the list and make major destinations our main goal and maybe travel out from there. Have no problem driving long hours or overnight between stops. Right now, 2-3 weeks is about as long as we can be gone at one time.

I'll add another vote for Moab. Would recommend the UT grand tour...
Zion, Bryce, Capital Reef, Arches and Canyonlands National Parks. All in the southern part of UT from west to east.

History buff?

Oregon Trail?

Stop in Baker City, OR. and check out the interpretive center.

Lewis And Clark is the Seaside/Astoria, OR. area.



There is so much to see and do you could make another trip out of just looking at the things along the way.

The first question that i would ask is "are you going for the trip, or the destination."

I vote for Glacier NP in NW Montana. We stay there for a week at a time and that is not quite enough time for us.

The biggest down side is that with your time line is short.

I see that you have a 2 or 3 week timeline for this trip... I doubt you can drive to and from the rockies from OHIO and see and do everything that you would WANT to do in that amount of time... you could spend a week or two easy just in Wyoming, or another week or two in CO or Utah... spend time in National Forest campgrounds where you will be able to find a campsite if you check in before 2 or 3PM and avoid the crowded National Park campgrounds

I know that area well, have an Uncle that lives in Cooke City, MT. Have driven, hiked, & snowmobiled on the Beartooth/Chief Joseph hwys. Spent time in Cody and Red Lodge.

Our main goal is see several of the main attractions along our trip. We are routing the trip based all of your recommendations and picking the highlights from your suggestions. We know we can't see it all, unfortunately, but our time is restricted to just a couple weeks or so. We also aren't going to tie ourselves down to a strict schedule. If we enjoy a place, we may stay longer and skip something down the road. There's always that "next trip". Again, thanks for all the suggestions, and keep them coming, especially the places to stay.
