most scenic route from Boulder to Portland, OR through Yellowstone
My son is returning from college in boulder and would like to take a scenic road trip home to Portland, OR. He is driving alone, so would prefer to keep the driving to 6-7 hours max per day. He has about 5 days to make the trip.
We drove from Portland to Denver last year and planned our route specifically for a scenic roadtrip with a few days visiting friends in Bozeman. Gorgeous scenery - it was one of our favorite roadtrips. This was the route we chose: Portland -> Walla Walla -> Missoula -> Bozeman -> Yellowstone/Grand Tetons -> Victor -> Denver. The US 12 is a drive that follows along parts of the Lewis & Clark and Nez Perce trails - it's longer, but what a stunning drive! Portland to Walla Walla is also amazing.
Michael Walla Walla is studded with award-winning wineries, including Woodward Canyon and l’Ecole 41. w
Michael 600’ Multnomah Falls, 30 miles E. of Portland is one of many waterfalls that can be visited along I-84
