5,747 miles. That’s how far it is by car from Indianapolis –> Boise, Idaho –> Crater Lake National Park and Portland, Oregon –> Olympic National Park and Seattle, Washington –> all the way back home again, in case you were wondering.

Six people, two weeks, one Suburban and the open road. From snacking at cat cafes and the original Pike Place Starbucks to dipping into the impossibly blue Crater Lake to visiting the real-life inspiration for the Twilight franchise, see my recommendations for your next trip to the stunningly beautiful (and often crazy quirky) Pacific Northwest.
