Hi -- I have reposted a question from the Sequoia forum, hoping some DV experts can help out. Thanks! The post is as follows:
I hope you can help with the following. Driving into Death Valley from Vegas, would you leave #95 at the 374 or the 373, to see the best sights in DV (Zabriskie Point, etc)? And do you have any favorite must-see spots in Death Valley-- great views, etc? What about staying in Death Valley at the Furnace Creek Inn?
I also noticed that Mere suggested leaving DV on the 190 to the 136 north to Lone Pine, even though Ally is heading south. Is that road much better, faster or more scenic than the un-numbered road that goes thru Trona and ends near Ridgecrest?
Finally, are there any great spots on the 395 or 190 for panoramic views of the Sierras?
sorry for so many questions, but any help would be appreciated!
