We'll be coming in (Presidents' Day week-end) after an overnight stay in Bakersfield, and it's hard to tell from the map which way is quicker (we'll have two nights at the Furnace Creek Ranch). Is it quicker to take CA-178 from Bakersfield, or CA-58 then CA-14? The former seems to have fewer miles but be somewhat windier on the map. And from the CA-178/US-395 junction, is it quicker to go up US-395, then cut off at CA-190, or just go all the way with CA-178? Thanks!
