1st timer on this forum here. 3 of my friends and i will be driving from SF - Vegas via Yosemite next month. been reading a lot of the Yosemite-Vegas routes so i think i have a better idea on the possible routes.
We'll be going from SF to Yosemite and spending a coupla hours there taking in the sights. Tioga Pass looks to be open still in September so thinking of takingroute 120 past Lee Vining and Mammoth Lakes. Roughly how long will that sector take and where's a good town to stop for shuteye? was thinking of Bishop or Big Pine or Lone Pine but not sure if the distance is do-able from Yosemite.
from that nightstop (to be determined), we're thinking of going thru Lone Pine (route 136), Death Valley (route 190) and on to Vegas. hoping to make it to Vegas before 5pm so that we can catch one of the shows.
so, is the plan too ambitious?
i don't do many road trips so not sure of how far too push before stopping.
any advice is most appreciated! thanks!
