Thanks Kent.
I enjoyed the story as well as a few others you wrote.

Judging a person does not define who they are, it defines who YOU are.

We are history buffs so we headed out roughly following Lewis and Clark out to the Pacific.

Somebody, please, point me to the road.

Great Falls MT to visit the "Lewis and Clark National Trail Interpretive Center". This is an all time favorite of mine. While in GF you may want to see the Charles Russell museum.

If you go the northern route and stop at Glacier NP, I highly recommend going into Canada to check out Waterton Lakes National Park. The US Canada border divides Glacier and Waterton parks.

Right-- so bring your passport. If you want to camp at the Waterton Townsite CG, reservations are recommended during the high season. There is a nice commercial boat ride from Waterton Townsite back into the US side of Glacier, and dog-lovers can take their dogs on the hiking trails, unlike in the US National Parks.

We spend some of July and most all of August in the Pacific northwest.
First thing, about your route. The Oregon coast is one of the nicest drives in the country. It is best done from north to south as there are many sights along the coast and the pullouts will be on your right. Otherwise, you would have cross the road each time, and it is one lane in each direction much of the way.
Don't know when or for how long you intend to be in the Northwest, but this will be our eleventh year at the Washington State International Kite Festival in Long Beach Washington, just across the Columbia River and north a few miles from Astoria, Washington. Fliers and kite makers from all over the world. A most colorful event. Third full week of August.
Plan several days to bump down the Oregon Coast.
When you get into California, don't miss the drive through the "Avenue of the Giants". It starts a few miles south of Eureka and takes you through the groves of giant Red Wood trees. Not to be messed.
