Washington and Oregon - Is this doable?

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are in our sixites, planning our first trip to Pacific Northwest since we were kids. So we want to pack in as much as possible for a 10 - 11 day trip. We could possibly squeeze in another day if it makes sense. We have some fleixibility but leaning towards leaving shortly after Labor Day.

What we enjoy the most is the outdoors - hiking (5 - 6 hours max), scenery, wildlife. Not really into night life, museums, shopping (would like to fit in Pike Street Market, though)

Here's what we were thinking:

Day 1: Fly into Seattle. Take Ferry over from Anacortes to Victoria or head over to Fort Angeles.
Day 2: Victoira - Butchart Gardens, China Town
Day 3: Lake Crescent Lodge: - Sights -Hurricane Ridge, Sol Duc Trail, Hoh Rain Forest
Day 4: Lake Quinault Lodge: - Ruby and Rialto Beaches
Day 5: Cannon Beach: - Ecola and Oswald West State Parks
Day 6: Cannon Beach: - if need more beach, travel south as far Cape Perpetua and then come back north to take scenic route along Columbia River Gorge
Day 7: Mt. Hood area: - any recommendationsfor lodging.
Day 8 - 10: Paradise Inn. Enjoy Mt. Rainier and then head back to Seattle for flight home.

Is this allow enough time for taking in some good hikes and beechcombing?

Which ferry to Victoria? San Juan Islands and Whidbey Island sound appealing, but thought maybe the ferry from Anacortes could give me my San Juan fix - and a bonus would be a whale sighting while on the ferry. We would probably overnight in Victoria, unless we decided to ferry out from Port Angeles and then we would probably just spend our first two nights in PA or Lake Crescent Lodge.

Seeing puffins and seals would be a treat. What beaches would be most likely to come across these?
