travelers drive to Death Valley National Park. This desert valley contains the
driest, lowest, and hottest spot in North America. Death Valley is part of the

the highest point in the contiguous U.S.
From Death Valley, it is about five hours to Yosemite
National Park in central California. This 761,268-acre park spans the western
Sierra Nevadas. Yosemite Valley represents only seven square miles but receives
more than 3.7 million visitors annually. Dramatic waterfalls, granite cliffs,
and Giant Sequoias are wonders for the eyes. Diverse plant and animal
populations make the wilderness even more interesting.
This fly-drive adventure ends with a discount airline ticket from San Francisco to home. Travelers will
be amazed that they covered more than 1,900 miles in the car. The distance will
seem much shorter due to the many interesting stops along the way. Click here to price
