A couple of weeks ago I posted a question about possible traffic concerns during a week-long tour in Vermont. I got some excellent responses (love this board!) and in the interim, my riding buddy and I started wondering why we were fixated on VT. When we thought of other possible destinations, two sprang to mind: Napa Valley, CA and the San Juan Islands in Washington.
Our travel window is roughly October 15-23. We realize this is high season in Napa, so we'll probably encounter increased car traffic. And it is approaching the rainy season in the San Juans.
My question is, has anyone toured either of these areas in this time period? And, if so, how'd you like it?
