We are 4 adult family members, very keen photographers, nature enthusiasts, tourist town shoppers, food and wine lovers, who have 2 x 5 night windows either side of a fixed 3 night stay in Las Vegas for work in early April.
I know how random these all are, but we've been just about everywhere else in these regions, and are just going back to see some things we missed.
Knowing that Tioga Pass will be closed when we're there in the first week of April, the debate we have that triggered my question is...
Should we continue to drive the long way on 88 and 395 from Yosemite via Mammoth and Death Valley onto Las Vegas, and then continue to drive from Las Vegas via Grand Canyon onto Page. Basically keeping the hire car the whole time and avoiding flights?
Should we finish in Yosemite and fly from Fresno to Las Vegas and then fly Las Vegas to Page and pick up another car there?
Hope that makes sense! We are flying in and out of LA from Sydney but have nothing else locked in. So the 13 nights all up could either be one big road trip, or could be two scenic side trips either side of boring work!
Thanks very much :-)
