This is my first time on this forum, so be gentle with me! I know there are similar questions to this on the forum already, but I just canít find the exact info Iím looking for. We are hoping to travel from Las Vegas to Yosemite in one day this August. Bearing in mind the temperature, I think we are going to avoid Death Valley and take the most direct route. Can anyone describe or even post a link to the most direct route? I tried Google Earth, but it seems to send me through Death Valley. Also, I read that the drive is doable in under 8 hours, is this really feasible including petrol and food stops? Many thanks in advance for any replies.
