US 2 / SR522 Spokane to Bothell

In a couple of weeks we are headed from Spokane to Bothell WA (north side of Seattle). We could go via I-90, but I am interested in taking US 2 west from Spokane to Monroe, then take SR-522 from Monroe down to Bothell. This route would be a bit shorter, and would take us into the Seattle area exactly where we want to be rather than having to deal with I-90 & then I-405 to get up to Bothell. Interstate highways bore me and I generally like US highways!

Anyone experienced with US2 and SR-522 between those points?

Concidering that you don't like freeways you should do fine. Hwy2 is mostly 2 lane and Stevens Pass is 1000' higher than Snoqualime. Just gear down on the down hills. Don't rely on the brakes.

The furthest east I've gone on 2 has been to Chelan, so I can't speak to anything between there and Spokane. Through the pass there's a lot of winding/curvy/2lane stuff you just don't have to deal with on 90, and there's always the danger of an accident taking out both lanes and then you're basically stuck while traffic jams up.

If there's inclement weather I'll usually choose 90, but otherwise I prefer 2. Definitely feel like it's the more scenic choice.
