I am travelling with my family from Las Vegas in August to Yosemite (El Portal). Having done some research/looked at various forums we need to stop somewhere on the way. We only really have the luxury of one night stopover.
Has anyone any suggestions the best place to stopover enroute? I would be keen to do Tioga Pass so would Bishop be a good place to stop overnight? Is it feasible to do Las Vegas - Bishop in one day? We can leave Vegas early morning. Is it then feasible to drive Bishop - El Portal in one day? Again prepared to leave Bishop early.
We have 2-3 nights booked in Yosemite to enjoy but were looking to do Tioga at a relaxed pace if possible. Death Valley will be so hot so would probably not stop to see anything so is it best to still go through Death Valley without stopping or choose alternative route?
Any help/suggestions would be very much appreciated.
