Do we drive through Death Valley and overnight in Lone Pine/ Bishop which is around 8-9 hours driving. .... OR .... do we drive through Barstow allowing us to see Calico Ghost Town, because I'd love to see a ghost town, staying overnight somewhere along the way .... OR .... do we fly to Fresno, hire a car and drive from there saving the travel time.
We only have to get to Yosemite, so if we drive which way would be more interesting, and are there other interesting things to see on the way. And more important as we will have a hire car ... is the road to Calico sealed?
Any help please:)
