Well, I've accepted a job in Portland, OR and will be traveling with the family across the country in a van. We're still trying to nail down the details of the trip and I'd like to hear a few good ideas about places to stop along the way.
Our first stop is Cincinnati (Madeira), where we'll visit with family and friends there.
Second stop is Chicago (Evanston), where we have some more family to visit.
We're currently debating whether to stop at the zoo in Omaha, Nebraska for the third stop. It may take longer than we'd like to stop.
Stop #4 should be Mount Rushmore, SD...we hope to go to the Crazy Horse Memorial (about 30 minutes away) the same day.
Stop #5 is Yellowstone National Park, WY. We'll probably drive through Yellowstone and spend some extra time there. One of my daughters is looking forward to seeing Old Faithful (the geyser).
Stop #6 we're thinking Twin Falls, ID...I think they have about half a dozen waterfalls nearby to check out.
Portland (West Linn), OR is the end of the trip.
I'm sure we'll stop a lot more than this, but was wondering if anyone had any ideas about other places along this general route we might want to see.
We also hope to see a lot of the northwest after we get to Portland on weekends and other free time, so places close to Portland can wait.
Any input will be appreciated.
