We are planning a grand circle tour in October - driving from and back to LV, through Arizona and Utah and have that all sorted now. While posting on the road trip forum, I got the idea that we should include Death Valley NP and Tet has given me some really helpful ideas (thanks Tet!). Thought I would bring my next questions over here as I am overwhelming myself a bit! As we have yet to book our flights, I have some flexibility on arrival and leaving date into and out of LV.
I am leaning towards include DVNP at the end of our trip which would mean 30th and 31st Oct and we would approach from Laughlin. Alternative is to do before we hit Zion (so LV/DVNP/Zion) which would be 30th Sept and 1st Oct. Either way we have two nights to spend DVNP.
After that long winded explanation - my question is where would it be best to stay - Furnace Creek or Stovepipe Wells? We would leave early in the morning from Laughlin - I think it is about 3 1/2 hour drive from Laughlin to DVNP? On our last day, will probably book an evening flight out of LAS to SFO.
Thanks so much for any advice.
