I hope I am doing this right, it's my first post :)
I am doing a trip with girlfriends in August and am taking 2 weeks to go from LA to Vegas. We were thinking of driving from Yosemite to Vegas, and leaving late at night from Yosemite (like 11pm) so that we can get to Death Valley in time for sunrise.
(1) Is it safe to drive on those roads (highway 395 to death valley) at night? Anything I should be concerned about? Or should I not do it?
(2) How long will it take to get to Death Valley? 6 hours?
All help is appreciated.
