Seattle -> SF trip
I may be heading up to Seattle next Monday to pick up a car (nothing special, but it's my first "real" car), and am going to drive it back home (SF Bay Area). For those of you that have done this drive a couple of times, where are the fun roads along the way? I'd like to do some scenic twisties rather than going freeways all of the way. Suggestions?
Also, anything I should check out in Seattle before leaving? For the photogs in the area, I'd love to know some of your favorite natural scenic backgrounds in the area, as I want to take some nice photos of the new car. I've been multiple times, but never got a local's take on non-touristy (and quick) things to do.
Thanks in advance for the help,

You can't beat the 101 through the Redwoods up until you hit Coos Bay. You can go over to 5 after that until you get to Northern OR, then cut back to the coast. While in Seattle, I would suggest Mount Rainier or head up about an hour north and look for Chuckanut Drive.

My favorite scenic area to drive is all the way down the Washington/Oregon coast. A couple of towns in Oregon on the coast that are nice to visit are Yachats and Geribaldi. I'm pretty sure I spelled those correctly. LOL! There is stuff do do along the way. It's peaceful, relaxing, beautiful, and yes, there are twisties. It's not much of a spirited drive during this time of year due to tourists though. Mid-week would be much better I think.BXTRGRL Racing~Jody Takagi Racing

I've done the #1 all the way from Seattle to SF, well except for the detours for where the road had dropped into the ocean. It's somewhat slow but gorgeous. It's even slower if you stop every 30 minutes to take pictures like I did...Loves wine, women and song
