Give a shout once you're in the area. Mt Rainer and St Helens are day rides for me. Sure others may want to join if available.

I ride a Road Glide. Therefore I am!

Roy,
Sounds like you are putting together a very nice and scenic trip! We live in Missoula, MT and did several of those spots early fall this year. Unfortunately, there was a lot of rain during our trip and we did not see some of the volcano/mountains you mention. However, plan on traversing along the Columbia River Gorge and you will visit a lot of them.
I used to live in Oregon but it has been a ton of years since I've visited Crater Lake area. It is also beautiful though!
I am assuming you use Google maps to set up your route?
What do you ride? Are you traveling alone?

I highly recommend the north cascade loop. Highway 20 from the coast to the Canadian border at Osoyoos is some of the most beautiful scenery you will find. The road is great too.

Oh, and by the way, if your coming from NY across the top of the US or the bottom of Canada, by all means don't forget to visit and tour the Black Hills and Sturgis, Lead and Deadwood City area of South Dakota, then across and over the Bear Tooth pass/highway, Virginia City and Bannack in Montana.

Plus on Hiway 20, the North Cascades Highway. If you want you can catch it at I-5 at Sedro-Wooley and ride it over the mountains to Winthrop. Once there, you can head south towards Leavenworth and take Highway 2 back over to the west side. One of the best rides in the state.

I second the cascade loop. Did that last July. Absolutely gorgeous and a great windy road. It was cool even in July. Snow on the peaks. Might want to check out the Olympic loop too. I was running behind so I skipped the Olympic Loop. Next summer I'll do that.

Been there, done that, and you would enjoy both!
