Route advice--Fast, pretty drive from ND to Leavenworth, WA

Jump to last reply

My daughter's plans have changed and instead of a sightseeing trip to some National Parks she is making a fast trip from Grand Forks ND to Leavenworth WA. She will be traveling alone (but she drove from southern AZ to Grand Forks by herself and did fine.)

She'll be doing the 1400+ miles in two days so no time for extended stops. There are a number of route variations that don't appear to add lots of time. She would rather not take 94 straight across, unless it happens to be very pretty.

ViaMichelin recommended highway 2 (as a scenic route) but also said it took an additional 10 hours. Mapquest says that route only takes an extra 3 hours. Anyone know how much it really adds? Is it too isolated?

Any good ideas for scenic rest stops or a good place to stop for the night? Thanks for your good advice!

(By the way, I am sure this trip sounds unworkable to some but we typically drive very long days and she is determined to try this.)
