I have read dozens of threads relating to this road trip so hope I am not covering old ground. We are coming over from England in early April, and will be travelling from San Francisco to Vegas. After a couple of days' sightseeing in Yosemite, we plan to leave Oakhurst and arrive in Sequoia around mid-morning. This will give us the rest of the day to see General Sherman etc. The next morning we will head towards Vegas, via Death Valley, and the route past Lake Isabella and Ridgecrest was recommended. As we need to be in Vegas sometime the following day, we would like to split this journey and stay overnight somewhere around mid-way, maybe in Ridgecrest or closer to Death Valley. Can anyone suggest somewhere we could stay, as I like to book in advance wherever possible?
