3 month trip July, August, Sept. or June July, August

25 ft Flying Cloud Front bedroom, Our longest trip to date. Leaving out of North Texas heading to South Dakota, Montana, Wyoming, Washington, Oregon, California then back home. Can't decide which route to take, heading north or west first? We plan on long stays in or around some of the national parks as well as visit friends along the way and maybe hit a winery or brewery along the way. We prefer full hookups most of the time but do not have to have them for 1-3 night stays. Anyone from N Texas done this trip and willing to share their route and preferences would surely be appreciated.
Thank you!

North first

After checking out the monuments and national parks in South Dakota, Wyoming, and Montana head west to Mount Rainier NP and cross Puget Sound at the Tacoma Narrows to Olympic NP. Check out Port Townsend on the NE point of the Olympic peninsula. Great state park @ Ft Worden with hookups. Hoh and Kalaloch CG in the Olympic NP are great for a few nights. Another great county park is at Salt Creek 15 miles west of Port Angeles. Traveling south along the Washington-Oregon coast your opportunities for vistas and pullouts are numerous. Reservations are essential during that time of year. Enjoy.

Three months seems like a long time, but including all those destinations will be challenging time-wise IMO. I would leave as late as possible, and aim for visiting the busiest locations after Labor Day, when schools are back in session. Are there specific parks/sights you want to see?

Maybe push north before the colder weather and shorter days happen closer to Canada? Especially at the higher elevations in the northern Rockies . . . then head west and come back down the coast?

In the 90's we did a round trip from NYC to San Diego and Napa, then back, in 7 weeks and we had to push constantly. Glad we did it but the next long trip will be more leisurely . . .

Have fun!
