Road trip Oregon-Washington-Banff-Montana-Utah

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are in the planning stages for about a 4 week road trip next Aug/Sep and I could use your ideas and suggestions.

Adventure starts in Redwoods along the northern Calif coast. Then we'll go to Grants Pass so we can raft the Rogue R before going to Crater Lake. We'll visit friends in Eugene. I'm looking at state parks along the Ore coast where we could rent a yurt for 2 nights before going to Portland. Then we'll drive the Columbia Gorge to Mr Hood. What waterfalls are the best to stop at and where to stay?

My main dilemma is the route to take from The Dalles to Banff and how much town should I allow. Probably 3 nights in Banff. What drives or hikes (up to 3 hours) could we do in 2 days to see the beauty and the wildlife? Lodging?

Then down to Glacier for 3 nights. Same questions.

I went to Yellowstone one winter on a snowmobile trip and saw the geysers. What could we see in 1 day/2 nights there?

Plan on stopping at Salt Lake City to see Olympic training area.

Bryce and Zion are high on my list. Probably 3 nights each. If I cant get lodging in the park we have the option of camping in the back of our Excursion. What's the best way to see these parks?

Adventure ends and head home to Louisiana.

Appreciate any help you can give.
