We are planning on driving down to Death Valley from San Fransisco on the way back to LA December 19-22nd, 2005. Does anyone have any suggestions if we wanted to include Sequoia Nat. Park? (ie can we cut across Sequoia to Death Valley or do you have to go around?) We are conscious of the weather possibly limiting the access but aren't sure how limiting it is (we are aussies so we are not so familiar with driving in snowy conditions.) would appreciate any suggestions for a possible route to follow. Thanks.
