Washington State To Michigan U P

We travel from Washington to Traverse City MI every August for at least a month. We are tired of traveling the same freeways all the time and are looking for some ideas for some differant scenery along the way. Any sugestions would be welcome

UP is beautiful. Take a look at staying at municipal CG in Ashland, WI. CG is on shores of Lake Superior. Ashland is a nice town with murals on bldgs. Worth looking at. We stopped for a few days in Marquette, MI, area, staying at Michigamme Shores CG. Marquette is worth a couple of days. Nice maritime museum, iron museum in adjacent town. Sample the whitefish. Munising, MI, cruise to Painted Rocks Nat Shoreline. Stop in Ste St Marie also. We stayed at CG on river below the locks.

You didn't say what part of Wash. you start from. I was thinking of hwy.2 from I5 is a very scenic road if you aren't in a hurry. It is mostly 2 lane. In Montana you will go right by Glaicer Park. There are some passes & grades.

If you are prsently taveling "freeways" I'll assume that you are using the interstates. In that case WA-20 is a nice scenic route through the North Cascades and US-2 is also a great scenic route. Naturally you can't beat I-90 for speed so there is a trade-off between getting there fast or taking the scenic route.

Stop to Tahquamenon Falls. Both upper and lower, I enjoyed the lower falls the best.

Cruzer, do I understand you correctly - WA20 and US2 are Phaeton friendly? Going next spring and despise interstates but will my little old 300hp make it to the coast this route?

I did those routes with a 250HP and also with a 400 HP ISL. You will not set any speed records but it is an OK route.

I second the choice of 2 across Wa, Id, Mt to Minn. I have done most of it and it is spectacular.
