Drive from Las Vegas to Death Valley. Must sees are: 1. Zabriskie Point. 2. Devils Golf Course.3 Badwater. 4 Dante's view and take the small loop on your way north.
To Stove Pipe Wells and on to Lone Pine for the night.
Visit Alabama Hills and take pictures of the Sierra Nevada and Mount Whitney and drive to LA in the afternoon.
Fill up your tank in LV, not in DV (expensive).
Lot of driving though in 2 days.
