We're Floridians and try to head west every summer. We are teachers so we have the luxury of time. We've fallen in love with Colorado (RMNP, Ouray, Durango, Ridgway),Utah (Zion, Bryce, DHP and Moab) and we've played long and hard in Yellowstone and the Tetons. We always try to add something new and Glacier is our paradise. Question is, what can we do from there west? I think we've decided against our first impulse, which was to cross the border into Waterton just to avoid customs with our dog and all. We've never made it to the Pacific. Any input would be much appreciated. Oregon? Pacific Coast Highway? We're one year from retirement, so Alaska will have to wait for that.

We're a little farther north than you, but we've done all those parks many times over the years.

From Glacier go north to Banff and the Ice parkway. Spectacular mountain scenes, Lake Louise, glaciers you can walk up to and so on. This is the first stop on the Alaska trip but you don't have to keep going.

We went up the east side of GNP to the Canadian Peace Park then up thru Calgary to Banff. Coming back we went down the west since passing Yoho NP and down to Kalispel. You need Passports. There are many threads about this area.

If you decide to go to the West Coast, during the summer, you better start making reservations now. Especially for anything on the beach.
I'm guessing that any Southern California State Beach campgrounds are already booked up.

Check the itinerary for Adventure Caravans who has tours all thru the West. That may give you some ideas. Or do a Google search for `_____ tourism' and put the State or City in the blank space and read what the specialists recommend for their area.

Mt Rainier, Mt St Helens, Crater Lake, Northern Redwoods of Ca. Yosemite, Sequoia/Kings Canyon, Grand Canyon.
These, plus some you already mentioned, there are many, many more but these are just some we've been to.

BC is absolutely beautiful. While we have a current health certificated for the dog and now cat we've never been asked for it. The few times border agents (both sides have come inside they some times pet the critters. But the big three have always been guns, wood and alcohol given the passport solves any ID concern.

You are also in the perfect place to take PCH south which is the best direction because of that BIG LAKE on the right side. OR, the people and the State Parks are well worth the trip. And then you can drop right into the main CA Redwood sections which have giants to behold.

AK in your future? FANTASTIC!!!

U.S. Hwy 101 through Northern California, Oregon and Washington is gorgeous. California Hwy. 1 from San Luis Obispo north to San Francisco ain’t bad either.

If you decide to visit Seattle or SF plan your safety VERY carefully. I have lived in the areas and have family there and the very well done video "Seattle is Dying" IS accurate. Portland and other cities also have issues. Travel save.

My heart was stolen in San Francisco couple of years ago. [emoticon]

More choices...North Cascades NP, Olympic NP, Columbia Gorge. The Oregon Coast is one of my favorites.
