With my wife, we are leaving Las Vegas for San Francisco next Monday December 22, and after spending hours reviewing lot of threads of your wonderful forum, I have decided to take this trip:
Our goal is to take the most scenic roads, no the fastest ones.
1st question, what do you think about taking the 178 to Lake Isabella directly from the Death Valley (Betty Junction) instead of the 190 - 395 and 178 ?
2nd, I am a little bit concerned about the weather. Is there usually a lot of snow on the 178 in December?
3rd, Do you think it's realistic to complete this trip in 4 days staying one night at Lake Isabella/Kernville, one in the Sequoia national park and one in the Yosemite Park ?
Last question but not least, what are the most comfortable hotels/Lodges at Lake Isabella or Kernville, in the Sequoia national park and in the Yosemite Park ?
Thank you very much for your help
