First off - great site, lots of very helpful people here.
We are planning to go to San Fran in April, stay a few days and then drive to Las Vegas.
We're only spending 3 days on the road trip, and the plan so far is:
San Fran to Yosemite (stay overnight)
Yosemite to Death Valley (stay overnight)
Death Valley to Vegas.
We've not booked anything yet, so no restrictions on where exactly to stay on the two nights.
So, this is the route I've pretty much pulled out of thin air: google maps link
My only concern really is if many roads will still be closed in April? Could this be a big factor?
If that's not a problem - how does my route look? Is it worth while driving south down towards Santa Cruz, and then heading to Yosemite?
