I'm very new to the site and even newer to the US - my wife and I will be coming over in September for the first time. I've looked at many posts on different sites to try and find the best/most scenic/fastest route from Vegas to Yosemite but I'm still confused! Given that we need to do it in one day (but want some scenery!) I think I've narrowed it down to two routes, both starting by going north up the 95. First route is to Tonapah and then west onto the 6 and 120 and then Tioga pass. The other involves going west earlier at the 266, 168 and then north on the 395 and finally west on the 120. Although we are looking for a reasonably quick route, for the sake of an hour we'd take the scenic option. Can you help?
Thanks so much,
