In mid January I'll be in San Francisco and have 4 days to kill. I want to visit Death Valley. One of the things I want to do is drive through Titus Canyon - I'm thinking it would be good to stay in Beatty the first night. Looking at Google Maps its about a 10.5 hour drive. Is the drive Is this doable in one day? Which way is more scenic - INTERSTATE 5 through California or taking US 95 through Nevada?
I know 4 days isn't a lot of time and it will take a day to get there and back leaving me only two days in Death Valley - is this enough time?
Thanks in advance for any suggestions
