Myself and my boyf are heading stateside for the month of July. We've a pretty packed itinerary but really want to do the route from SF to Vegas via Yosemite and Death Valley.
This trip must be the most discussed route of this forum but after lots of searching I still have some questions!! We're on a bit of a time limit so we're hoping to traval from SF on 17th and spend 3 nights in Yosemite. We're leaving Yosemite on 20th and heading to Death Valley via tioga pass. From what I've seen I reckon we need to do a stop over in somewhere like lone pine or lee vining then head to DV. One night in DV then arriving in Vegas for 22nd of July.
Now, does this sound doable? Is it utter madness to drive through DV in late July. If you think it is (madness) can you suggest another way to get to Vegas as quickly?
We only have one shot at this and we really really want to get this right!! We're so excited its a trip of a life time.
I'd appreciate any tips you can give us,
Thanks a million agus Slán!!
