It's sounding like we'll be wanting to spend more time in Oregon. Lots of interesting things to check out. We both love the outdoors, and my wife is a geologist.

FreeLancer:
Yellowstone is awesome in the winter if you can fit it in on your way back north.  Tetons, too.

FreeLancer:
You could squeeze in Death Valley between Yosemite and Grand Canyon.  The east side of the Sierras is incredibly rugged, and there's only 85 miles between the highest point in the lower 48 to the lowest spot in North America.  And the Mojave is beautiful in winter, without the heat and mirages you can see forever.

We're planning on checking out the Mojave on our way from Big Sur to Tucson.

We were thinking that we would plan another future trip without dogs so that we can enjoy Vegas without having to worry about our dogs. When we do that trip, we'll rent a car and check out Death Valley and Grand Canyon.

Yep, Crater Lake definitely has to be on your list.  And maybe some of the volcanic areas around Bend, in the center of the state.  And at least part of the Columbia Gorge.  And and and. 8)
