I'm looking to leave Las Vegas mid afternoon and arrive in Mammoth Lakes the next evening. This will be done at the start of June (I think I'm prepared for the temperatures - I know it's going to be 100-110F)
So far the route is:
Las Vegas to Furnace Creek via Artist's Drive and Golden Canyon.
Stay in Furnace Creek.
Travel to Dante's View for sunrise.
Travel through Titus Canyon (only if I can hire a Jeep)
Return Jeep to Furnace Creek
Maybe visit Mosaic Canyon (too much for the limited time?)
Visit Ubehebe Crater
Visit Eurka Dunes (if time)
Continue to Mammoth Lakes.
I will be travelling in a normal modern car.
I will bring lots of water.
I'm not concerned about the long day driving (I'd imagine it will be very exciting) but I am a little worried about the Death Valley Road - the one that goes from Ubehebe Crater to the turning for the Eureka Dunes. (I've checked the DVNP website and it seems like the other roads are paved with the exception of the Eureka Dunes road which is unpaved but quite good).
Could anyone tell me if I've chosen the wrong places to visit and if I will encounter difficulties on Death Valley Road?
Many thanks in advance,
