On the way from Las Vegas to Yosemite we plan to spend one night in Visalia. When we look into recommendations for the travel from Las Vegas to Visalia, the general recommendation seems to be to drive on Highway 15 and then up to Bakersfield before coming to Visalia.
We are keen to see as much as possible (of course) and have looked into crossing Death Valley NP on the way to Visalia. Is this possible and can it be recommended or will it be too tight? We realise that it will be a long day and that there will not be much time for sightseeing (maybe just stopping at Dante's view), but if the route is much more scenic it may be worth the effort. Which option is the best?
