Washington and Oregon, two weeks in the nature

Jump to last reply

Hi everyone, this post is relatively generic, but i'm getting lost in too much information and I need some help.
I'm trying to figure out how to spend about 10 days in the nature side of these states while starting from seattle and going south (we are driving down to LA).

I don't need any city recomendations as we will stop in the major cities driving north.

I see all these names, Olympic park, juan islands, Vancouver, BC (Ok, one city in the list), Oregon coast, different mountains (rainer,helen, adam), colombia river gorge, crater lake... I just have no idea what to chose, and where to go..

We are looking to camp every night, so hopping between campgrounds.

This will be my first time in these areas, so I guess i'm looking for some tips about the highlights, where should I stay, how long, do a great day hike, or even 2 day backpacking trek..

Any advice is welcome.
Thank you in advance
