Re: Cross country trip to the rally in Oregon... Need recommendations
A couple of us rode through Yellowstone last year, and it was disappointing. It was pretty and all, and seeing buffalo and moose was a kick, but all in all, I wouldn't do it again. In fact we're planning another trip this year, down through Colorado, and back up through Wyoming, but will skirt around Yellowstone. Our intent this year is to ride The Million Dollar Highway (550?) and to hit the BearTooth Pass again. If I could recommend anything along your route, that's it. The BearTooth, by way of Jackson Hole Wy.
When you get to Redmond, there's a ride you can take around Mt Bachelor and the Cascade High Lakes. That ride is actually prettier than Yellowstone.
