We are flying into Las Vegas on September 4 and driving to Death Valley with plans to drive on to Lee Vining on the 5th and spending the day in Yosemite on the 6th . As of now , we hope to be able to keep this plan . We have reservations in Turlock on the night of the 6th and then drive to the California coast bypassing San Fransisco (we have made a previous trip there ) IF we need to change plans because of the fire close to Yosemite could someone suggest the quickest way to the coast from Death Valley ? We had plans to drive from Turlock to Oakland then make our way
to 101 then drive up the coast into Oregon and staying in or around Cannon Beach on the 9th .
