I hope you smiled for the photographers and pulled over to let the motorcycles pass.

We've enjoyed the Pacific Coast Highway; southbound is better for the ease of taking the pull-outs.

Take care,
Stu

The Seward/Sterling highway. It doesn’t get much better imho.

The 101 north of Ventura is nice, but I think that’s mostly because it’s a break after transiting the greater LA area.

I-70 Glenwood Springs to Denver is pretty nice too.

I've already posted but there are so many great places. I also vote for US24 between Minturn, CO and Buena Vista, CO. The highway

It has views of the ghost town Gilman and the Red Cliff Bridge. Gilman is best viewed from a turn out just west of Red Cliff. The bridge can be viewed from a turn out just west of the bridge. The bridge has been featured in Coors Light commercials with a Coors Light eighteen wheeler on the bridge.

It also has great views of the 14,000 foot mountains to the west of the highway between Leadville and Buena Vista.

See the attached photos.

Is that highway 1 and 101 ? I didn’t even think about which way would be better. Thanks!

Any highway with light traffic and a gentle downward slope

Rob, IMHO, the best is US101 from Astoria, OR to Big Sur, CA. Very little of US101 in Washington is along the coast. Most of US101 through Oregon overlooks the Pacific Ocean. Same for northern California, too. Much south of Big Sur starts seeing much more traffic. Also, CA has vehicle size restrictions on many roads that might preclude some vehicles; check legality before you take a big rig on CA highways.

As I mentioned, southbound is better to make any turnouts; no left turns across traffic. During some times of the year, with a more southern arc for the sun, the late afternoon can be a little wicked.

Take care,
Stu

Honorable mentions to 1) any road in the Canadian Rockies, 2) the Klondike Highway between Carcross, YT and Skagway, AK, and 3) the Top of the World Highway between Chicken, AK and Dawson Creek, YT.
Best highway in North America? The Dempster from Dawson City, YT to Tuktoyaktuk, NWT on the Arctic Ocean. It's like driving from Seattle to Glacier National Park. On a dirt road. With three places to fuel up. 570 miles, each way, of scenic bliss. It looks just like it did when Alexander Mackenzie paddled through.

I was waiting for someone to make this post I have never driven Alaska but have heard.

Thanks! We have relatives who live at Washington/Oregan border. Thinking about leaving the DP on their property and doing that road trip in the toad. Probably in 2024.

So 101 south then what scenic route back to Washington border?

Yup, 24 down to Salida. And in the best car for viewing! Then 82 over to Aspen. Last 2 weeks of Sept. Stop by the Grottos.

Nobody has mentioned pikes peak. Been up twice, will probably do it again sometime. Was sleeting at the top both times we did it end of June.

Another good road is the drive thru Rocky Mountain National Park in CO, taking the most northerly route, which I believe is "Old Fall River Road". That section of the drive is pretty nice and should be done in the Toad, as the last nine miles or so is a one-way dirt road; or at least in June 2018 is was. It may not always be open, depending on the weather.
Thanks,

There is no scenic way back to Washington. 101 back through the Oregon coast is the very, very, very best. It doesn't hurt to drive it twice and do some stops you missed on the way south.

Avoid the crowds at the big 5 and enjoy this ride. Thousand Lakes CG at the north end is tops, with morning muffins and steaks at night on site! Short drive to uncrowded Capitol Reef NP
Gotta love Utah Hwy 12. Be sure to enjoy driving along the Hogback. Drop off’s from both sides, spectacular. Have only missed the route one decade since the 70’s. Last time was the first time since retiring and wasn’t a “Hurry up and have fun” vacation. Spend some time in Capital Reef area if you can, I also recommend Thousand Lakes RV Park.
