We will be in the area in January 2012 and I am looking for the best ways to get from Yosemite to Kings Canyon. Drive through Sequoia to Death Valley and then to Vegas. We only have a few days and I would not mind skipping Death Valley (I believe it is easier to go there from Vegas). If I check google maps, Rand McNally and Maquest I only get the big roads, no short cuts and/or scenic routes. Any advice?
Does anyone know weather conditions that time a year? We would not want to get stuck in the snow somewhere. Thanks!
