Looking for some advice as to whether six days is long enough to explore both Sequoia NP and Death Valley NP. We don't want to spend all our time driving and really want to explore on foot as much as possible, so any suggestions as to fastest possible routes would be welcomed.
We were planning on driving from Las Vegas on Sunday 09 Sept afternoon to Sequoia (probably won't make it all the way as we don't get vehicle until 3pm and don't really want to be driving after dark so any recommendations of a campground would be great - perferably not a commercial campground), staying for 2 days and then driving to DV NP. is this realistic or are we too short on time? We need to be back at LV airport by 11am on Sunday 16 so will need to camp close by the night before (we DON'T want to stay in Las Vegas!).
Both parks are unfamiliar so we'd welcome any suggestions of walks (preferably 4-5 hour walks of any level difficulty) and also of campgrounds - the least people and the quieter the better. We will be travelling in a VW camper so this might also limit our campground options.
Looking forward to any suggestions or recommendations.
thanks and regards
