Hi RoadTrippers, It's great to be here - the information and advice on this site are great. Keep up the good work!
My wife and I are planning a trip in May next year to "celebrate" my big 4-0!. The plan would be to arrive in Las Vegas then leave from San Fran around two weeks later. If we start in LV for a couple of days then head out to the South Rim for an overnight, are we best to head back to LV for another night if we plan on going through Death Valley toward Yosemite? Is there a reasonable alternative (e.g. via Lone Pine)? I understand that some passes may still be closed in Yosemite. Still piecing together the itenerary so any advice or "must do's" for the trip appreciated. Sam.
