seedview, I agree about the crowds. When I drove to Vancouver, I took the main interstate, and had to stop at a lot of the travel plazas for gas, etc - total yuck. Nothing but tourists in a hurry to get where they were going, not stopping to enjoy the trip itself. On the way back, I took the "scenic route", two lane highways, little Mom and Pop gas stations, "greasy spoons" - it was great. I could actually sit and chat with the people as I ate a leisurely breakfast, trade weather stories while pumping gas - and stop along the road for pictures when I wanted to, not just at designated "scenic outlooks".
