Oregon Waterfalls, Mt Rainier & Palouse Waterfall in 5 Days

by manishbit »

Hi All,

Need help on finalizing the below Itinerary and which are the Best Waterfalls for Photography, including Night Photography to capture the Milky Way

Just want to clarify, that I totally understand the amount of driving this route entails and have seen and double checked everything in Google Maps. There will be 3 of us driving and we are used to taking turns and driving 300-400 miles a day, around 7-8 hrs (or more) of driving every day. (You will see similar discussions by me on other National Parks in my profile)   Due to the limited amount of days we have, I want to make the best (feasible) use of time to get nice landscapes/compositions/night shots. And I totally understand that we are not doing justice to the places that we want to see and we will not be able to see everything, but that is how it is :-(    Day 1: Olympic NP (However much we can cover), then Night stay near North Cascades NP. How much of ONP do you think we can cover and what would be the most scenic route, keeping in mind that we have to travel north towards North Cascades. What would be a nice place to stay near North Cascades, keeping in mind the Night photography aspect   Day 2: Drive towards Mt. Rainier via Wenatchee National Forest, Leavenworth etc and head towards Mt. Rainier. Night halt somewhere on the way, maybe Ellensburg etc. Which route would be the most scenic and what would be nice place to stay near Mt. Rainier, keeping in mind the Night photography aspect   Day 3: See Mt. Rainier and head towards Palouse. Night Photography at Palouse Waterfalls. Which route would be scenic and which place should we stay at Night ?   Day 4: See Steptoe Butte SP and head towards Columbia River Gorge. Which route would be scenic and which place should we stay at Night ?   Day 5: See Columbia RIVER GORGE - Hood River Valley and the waterfalls – Multnomah, others. Have Flight in the evening at around 7 from Portland   Thanks as ALWAYS for your Guidance….It has helped me efficiently plan my earlier trips, ALWAYS.   Regards Manish
