US97 is a fine road to take from I-5 to Bend. Going north from there just stay on 97 to I-84/82 and then pick up US395 to I-90. It's all pretty easy driving; eastern WA has lots of rolling hills and ups and downs, but nothing to be concerned about.

You do not want to take I-5, it would have 4 very long and steep climbs. Take US 97 from Weed, CA to Bend, OR to I-84 and then east to US 395. I would never drive the south half of I-5 if I did not have to. You can stay on the by-pass of Bend and miss most of the stop lights and still get fuel on the North end a Space-Age.
