We are heading to the states for our honeymoon in Nov 2011 and want to visit both Death Valley and Yosemite Park. Our first stop from Sydney is to LA for 3 nights, then flying over to San Fran, staying there for 4 nights then we were hoping to drive to Las Vegas via Yosemite Park and Death Valley.
I have done a little research and drive from San Fran to Yosemite Park is 4 hours and drive from LVegas to Death Valley approx 3 hrs each way. so to save breaking it up and driving to and from San Fran and LV I thought doing one big road trip from San Fran to Vegas. Few questions:
1. Is this the more logic way to do it since we are tight on time?
2. Time it would take from san fran to Vegas incl stops in yosemite park and death valley?
3. Recommend places to rest overnight
4. any road closures or restrictions during November?
I am open for any suggestions to get this done in a short time frame as we then head off to NY from Vegas.
