hi, just found this site while doing some research for my upcoming travelling in the USA. i just want some advice since it will be my first time in USA, i'm from australia. i will be travelling to USA for two weeks at the end of july.
i'm planning a trip from los angeles to las vegas visiting grand canyon, and this part of the trip seems fine, driving wise. my concern is from las vegas to san francisco, not much information on this route so i'm worried its not easy to drive?
i'm planning to leave las vegas in the afternoon/evening, don't know where to stop but from some rough information it will be before arriving in yosemite. (where is best to stay overnight?). early morning leave and arrive in yosemite. not spending much time here, but just want to make some simple memories here as it will be a waste not to. then arrive in san franciso in the evening. is this achievable?
also i do not want to go through death valley, is that avoidable on this route?
so in short my rough plan is like this.
mon- los angeles to las vegas in the early morning
tues- one day trip from las vegas to grand canyon (north rim)
wed- leave las vegas in afternoon/evening heading to yosemite
thurs- arrive in yosemite in the early morning. spend some time then in afternoon drive to san francisco arriving in the evening.
would this be too exhausting for the amount of days?
