    Thanks Dave! In Yosemite we were thinking of staying at Rush Creek Lodge... not Bishop/Lee Vining. Do you think this is a bad option?

    @Donna and GLC, totally understood re unrealistic driving times. Maybe I'll just double them to be on safe side, but even then, I believe the itinerary could remain the same as I did allow for full day drives for the long ones in either case.
    Thanks a lot for the advice!

    You may be rushed trying to get from Death Valley to Rush Creek Lodge on the same day. Rush Creek Lodge is outside the park on the west, and you will be entering the park from the east, so you essentially have to drive through the whole park to get there.

    I think you misunderstood me. I was suggesting that you consider staying in Bishop or Lee Vining on the 31st July on route to Yosemite after having spent some of the day in Death valley. Then take your time driving into Yosemite on the 1st August and have time to stop and explore along the Tioga Pass. After that staying on the west side of the park as you planned makes perfect sense, as that's where the main areas of the park are.
