The ride from Las Vegas, Nev., to Yosemite National Park, Calif., will take you through Death Valley, Lone Pine, Bishop, Yosemite proper and Lee Vining. What better way to celebrate and recuperate from a wild day or two in Vegas than a trip across the striking beauty of Death Valley? And then, of course, you'll end your trip at arguably the most famous of our country's national parks, Yosemite, whose beauty and views are unparalleled. As a test of mettle, the Vegas-Death Valley run is known for separating the big dogs from the pups -- but Yosemite, or even a side trip to Lake Tahoe, is the perfect reward.
