I've been reading a lot of great tips and information about this route, and I thank everybody for that.
I'm planning a trip from Las Vegas to San Francisco in March.
March 7th: Flight Sao Paulo - Las Vegas
March 8th: Las Vegas
March 9th: Grand Canyon. Unfortunately I have only one day to have a glimpse of the Grand Canyon.
I'm thinking of either going by car to the Hualapai skywalk or take the helicopter tour from Las Vegas.
March 10th: Las Vegas
March 11th: From Las Vegas to Death Valley. (Furnace Creek Ranch)
March 12th: From Furnace Creek to Yosemite (Yosemite Lodge at the Falls)
March 13th: Yosemite
March 14th: From Yosemite to San Francisco
March 15th: San Francisco
March 16th: Flight San Francisco - Sao Paulo
I've read some comments about the Skywalk versus the Grand Canyon National Park, but considering
that I have only one day to do this, what would be the best in terms of experience?
Second, as far as I understand the trip from Furnace Creek to Yosemite will take the whole day.
I've seen in a previous thread that the best would be to go south passing Bakersfield and Fresno,
since Tioga Pass will be closed at this time of the year. Now my real issue is if I will be able to
get to Yosemite Lodge at a reasonable hour and what kind of road conditions I most likely have
at this time of the year. Are snow chains really necessary?
Are there other options, like leaving my car somewhere near and go to Yosemite Lodge with public
Thanks in advance,
