We're planning on making a change to our DV trip next week(first week of October). Instead of staying Saturday night in Beatty, NV we want to head out to to the west side of Yosemite and also see Mono Lake.
Google map has us taking CA-190 to CA-395 thru Owens Valley and it estimates the trip to be about 5 hours.
After Staying in Yosemite on Saturday night, we'll drive back to Las Vegas, which is abouta 7 hour drive by this route.
I'd love to hear your thoughts on both the accuracy of the drive time and especially the route back to Vegas(any back country roads in that route?)
