Oregon, Washington and British Columbia all have gorgeous mountains with snow.
At least we have better beaches :) + theme parks
Robert, how come you drove nearby Yellowstone and didn't go there? It's the perfect family destination.
While it looks relatively close on the map, Yellowstone was still a few hundred miles away from our course, and would have required an extra four days to cover just superficially. We're hoping to swing by on a future trip when we can see the park right.
If you are doing this trip now, you probably want to visit a ski resort or something, but I dont find that all exciting (then again, I can do it all the time). Just be prepared for below zero temperatures if you are visiting around now and 100 degree temperatures if visiting in the summer. And lastly, WE ARENT ALL MORMONS!
