Route 138, north of Crater Lake
Some might expect a travelogue to document an entire travel experience. My travelogue, however, reflects my senses of humor and interest, which demand inspection of pedestrian details, removed from their context. I hope you find this journal as interesting and entertaining as my travel experience.
My intended destinations included the cities of Florence, Mukilteo, Olympia, Portland, Seattle, and Willow Creek; nearly a dozen state and national parks; several heritage forests; Crater Lake; Mount Rainier; Puget Sound; historic Lewis & Clark sites; the rocky Pacific Coast; and my personal highlight, Bigfoot country. I visited most of these, and the others will wait patiently for my next vacation. All told, I drove a distance greater than the diameter of the moon (2,194.4 miles vs. 2,164 miles) through three states in one week. The New Englander in me chafes at this, as such a distance would consume 15-20 New England states, if that many existed. As I learned first-hand on Tuesday, everything is BIG out west.
Without further ado, here is my week, chronologically:
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday
