First trip to Pacific Northwest---need help

Jump to last reply

Well, our family vacation to Yellowstone has turned into the Pacific Northwest. Our son expressed an interest in going to the Washington/ Oregon area because he liked the scenery in the "Twilight" movies. We all like the outdoors and we prefer smaller towns rather than cities, but would not mind seeing some sights in Seattle if we have time. We are in the timber industry, so we would like to also squeeze in a visit to see Redwoods.
We fly from Ga. to Seattle on a Thursday in late June, arriving about 10:30 a.m.. Will pick up rental car at airport and start our adventure. We must return our car early Sat. morning of the following week and fly back to Ga. We do not have a lot of time, but we are going to do the best we can with the time we have. Here are the sites we would like to see. Let me know what you think.
Forks, Wa and Timber Museum
Mt. St. Helens
Columbia River Gorge
Mt. Hood
Oregon coastline areas
Redwoods
Crater Lake

We would love to see sea lions and other wildlife if we could. We are not crazy about long tours. Short raft trip would be fun.
I am wondering if we should choose 2 or 3 places to stay and do day trips.
Any help would be appreciated.
I forgot to mention that we are a family of four---dad,mom, and two boys(18 and 21).
