Hi, We are a family of 4 traveling from New Zealand around California from 7 May - 9 June this year. We are planning to visit and stay in Yosemite mid-May and then plan to make our way to Las Vegas before carrying on to Disneyland, and back up the coast to San Fran. Our dilemma is the best route to take leaving Yosemite to get to Las Vegas - can we realistically do this in one day, bearing in mind that Tioaga Pass will probably not be open? What is the best route to get us to Las Vegas, and if we had to stop off where is best (we thought Death Valley at the Furnace Ranch (Inn not available), what is this place REALLY like), or should we push on further and find somewhere closer to Las Vegas with more choice - looking for somewhere just to "chill" with pool, nice facilities before the sensory overload of Vegas. How long in driving hours is this trip (Yosemite to Las Vegas), we figure between 10-11? (not via Tioaga Pass), if you cannot go via Tioaga Pass which route should you take? We are staying at the Evergreen Lodge which is about 22 miles from Groveland. Everything else for our trip seems to make sense except this part! Hope you can help. Many thanks.
