    Default Yosemite is worth it.

    Hello and welcome to the R.T.A forums.

    It's a very popular trip and one that you should find lots of info on within the forums.
    From San Fran to Vegas the most direct route would be to get on I-5 heading south and then CA 58 to Bakersfield and Barstow[stopping in this area] and onto I-15 to Vegas.

    From Vegas to Yosemite, a very popular route is to leave on the 160 to pahrump and then across Death valley [190] to Lone pine and North on the 395 towards Lee vining.
    A popular stop would be around the Bishop or Mammoth area time wise.
    At Lee vining you cross the sierras by way of the Tioga Pass [120] into Yosemite, but to do this and make it worth while you will need at least another night in or just out the other side of Yosemite before continuing to S/F or else you are just going to be driving the whole time.
    Having said that it is worth it, Yosemite has outstanding scenery and is one of my favorite places.
