i`m also new to the site, although I`ve been reading a lot in the forums recently.
So I`m planning a similar trip with a couple of friends and would like to ask if I`ve got it right and it could be done.
Day 1 - arriving in Las Vegas and spending the night there
Day 2 - Driving to GC and sleeping somewhere around it (Flagstaff?)
Day 3 - Sunrise, exploring the GC and driving back to LV for the evening
Day 4 - Heading to Death Valley, exploring it and sleeping in Bishop or around
Day 5 - Driving to Yosemite and spending the day there. Sleeping outside the park - Sonora, Oakdale?
Day 6 - Heading to Napa valley and spending the night there
Day 7 - SF
Day 8 - SF
Day 9 - Driving along the coast on Highway 1 and spending the night at Santa Barbara
Day 10 - LA
Day 11 - Flying to Miami and continuing there
Is the plan good time-wise? Will we be able to cover most of the interesting sites? It is our first time in the US and I really cannot be sure whether I`m planning realistically.
Thanks a lot for the insight and feedback!
