There is so much wonderful advice on this board...can someone give this a "once-over" and let me know if it seems "comfortable?":
Are we too ambitious? Will we return happily married? ha!
Day 1: Arrive Las Vegas (early afternoon)
Day 2: Depart Vegas (mid-late afternoon)
Arrive Grand Canyon area
Day 3: Explore Grand Canyon
Depart GC (early evening)
Drive to: _______________
Day 4: Depart:________________
Visit Death Valley
Arrive at: ______________ (Mammoth Lakes?)
Day 5: Depart: ______________
Day 6: Yosemite
Day 7: Depart Yosemite
Arrive Monterey (evening)
Day 8: Monterey/Carmel/Big Sur
Day 9: San Fran (Sausalito?)
Day 10: San Fran/Napa ?
Day 11: Depart San Fran (evening)
Another option might be to head directly for the Grand Canyon on the day of arrival into Vegas and then stop in Vegas post-Grand Canyon. Vegas seems like a natural stopping point between GC and Death Valley. Are there oher places that seem like a good half-way point between the two?
Too much? Any "Must-sees" or good stopping points between Grand Canyon and Death Valley? Because of the time of year that we will be traveling, I don't want to stay in Death Valley overnight. Is Mammoth Lakes a good place to be nearby?
