We are just starting to plan our itinerary for late June. After a road trip up the Pacific Coast Highway and a 3 day stay in Carmel, we will be at Yosemite for 5 days, out Tioga pass (hopefully) then heading to Mammoth Lakes for 1 night and south to DVNP where we have reservations at Furnace Creek Ranch for 1 night. We will then be heading to Las Vegas for 3 nights.
While we know it will be hot, we would like to see the singing dunes. Is this part of the park accessible to vehicles? We saw these profiled on a NatGeo special and I think it would be awesome to see the dunes and hear this phenomenon.
My next question is how to make the most out of our day trip out of DVNP and which way should we exit to get the most scenic route to Las Vegas...our first destination out of DVNP may be Valley of Fire State Park.
Thanks so much
