I'm heading down to the Cascades this weekend and I haven't been down there on the bike before (terrible, I know). Any advice on this route? It's a two-day trip and I have to get to Yakima by the late afternoon to check out a breeder.
Also, any tips on good hotels in the Yakima area?
EDIT: I am going down hwy 9 btw... I just mean advice on the cascades route.
