North West Corner USA Road Trip

Flights available from LHR to SEA for c£500 end of Aug /start of Sep for two weeks – awesome! US Road Trip here we come!!

Seattle (2nghts)

Flight will hopefully be in by lunchtime, giving a half-day plus a full day to wander in Seattle before heading for Olympic NP.

Port Angeles (3nghts)

After catching the ferry to Bainbridge Island it’s about 1.5hrs to Port Angeles, so plenty of time to stop at Port Gamble and for a wander out along Dungeness Spit before again enjoying the spectacular drive into Port Angeles – a breathtaking sight when I was here three years ago.

Tacoma (1nght)

Having driven the west side of Olympic NP, past the spectacular beaches, you arrive at Aberdeen – birthplace of Kurt Cobain and the Memorial Park is surely worth a visit and there is a Museum of History.

Ellensburg (1nght)

2hrs from Tacoma to Sunrise Visitor Center at Mount Ranier for a day of hiking followed by a 3hr drive to Ellensburg.

St Mary, Glacier National Park (3nghts)

Good day of driving, 8.5hrs & 500 miles, from Ellensburg. A leg-stretcher at Ginkgo Petrified Forest would be welcome.

Bozeman (1nght)

Yellowstone National Park (2nghts)

No way I could come this close without visiting one of the most amazing places on Earth!

  • Love some hiking in the area!!

The Dalles (1nhgt)

About 11hrs & 700miles from Yellowstone, I’ll find somewhere to stay overnight…

  • Mt St Helens – perhaps it is due for an eruption but I’m looking forward to revisiting this volcano, with it’s wonderful, winding drive upwards…

Seattle (2nghts)

Continue on back to Seattel from Mt St Helens – see above for Seattle ideas! 🙂
