San Francisco to Seattle Road Trip in early November

Jump to last reply

Hi. We are planning a road trip from San Francisco to Seattle in the first week of November. It will be a 6-day trip for us (to and from). I was wondering if those who've traveled this route around this time frame could give us some pointers:

(1) We will be driving in a Honda Civic. Car is in good condition and I plan to take it in for a check-up the week before the trip.
(2) I was told that there might be some snow in the mountains around OR and WA by that time, and it could be scary. Is there really snow by that time of year? (We live in NorCal and driving in the snow is foreign to us.)
(3) We are avid photographers and would like some suggestions for places to stop and take photographs.
(4) Any other best practices in terms of routes to take/avoid, what to bring, places not to miss, etc. would be most appreciated!
Thanks in advance and I look forward to all your tips and suggestions!
