My hubs and I (in our 60's) will leave Vegas, go through Death Valley and then Highway 395 up to Lake Tahoe. We are from Europe and not big drivers - if leaving Vegas around 11 in the morning on 27th May (can't leave earlier) is it fine timewise to go straight through to Lone Pine (or better stop at Stovepipe wells)? We just dont' want a totally exhausting drive and heat and road conditions we have no feeling for.
We know there is so much to see in Death Valley but sadly have to head up to Lee Vining for the evening of 28th - only night of 27th to drive through and stay over somewhere............thought going through better than missing it and heading up straight to Bishop.
Any advice appreciated - thanks!
