Hi all fellow road-trippers!
I would greatly appreciate some tips on best routes from Grand Canyon to Yosemite. We will come for a three week roadtrip to southern California in August-September. We will fist spend few days at Las Vegas and then head up to Crand Canyon South rim on August 21.
I have tried to figure out the best route from thereon to Yosemite, which would not so much include the same roads that we will use to get to Grand Canyon (we will come from LAX through Barstrow to Las Vegas and from there the usual route to the south rim).
I have been thinking about the following route: from Grand Canyon heading a bit east and then up to Utah and then from Cedar City (or St. George) west towards the desert and (through a lot of very small cities) through Tonopah to Yosemite. I am, however, a bit uncertain of this route due to the fact that it involves a lot of desert and the sierras. How are the roads, what is the scenery, is there any places to stay for the night etc...
I would appreaciate any tips, route suggestions or advice on routes not to be taken!
