This will be my first time at Sasquatch and first time in the Pacific Northwest - I'm making a trip out of the whole thing and flying into Portland, spending a few days, heading to Ellensburg and driving to Seattle after. There appears to be a few different ways to get to Ellensburg from Portland, one is to take US-5N past Mt St. Helens and take US-12E or to take I-84 E and 97 N.
I was just wondering if anyone had any recommendations, I thought it might be cool to see Mt. St. Helens but didn't know if it's tricky driving through the mountains. If anyone has any recommendations or fun places to stop on the way to make the drive more interesting I would greatly appreciate it!
take US12e its beautiful. i live just 15 minutes from mt st helens and its an absloute must see!it will take you an extra hour but it will be well worth it and going over white pass is breathtaking its give you more scenery than just driving through the gorge on I-84
