Day 3

Las Vegas - Death Valley - Mammoth Lakes.
Having enjoyed the fast pace of glamorous Las Vegas, it will be s a sharp contrast this afternoon to enter the quiet and extreme environment of Death Valley. Situated in between some high and distant mountain ranges, this is by far the hottest spot on your journey! Stop at Zabriskie Point and Furnace Creek Ranch before continuing across the valley and ascending the Sierra Nevada Mountains to the alpine resort town of Mammoth Lakes.
Mammoth Mountain was formed over 200,000 years ago as a series of violent volcanic eruptions. The area gained prominence as a gold mining town in the 19th century, but today it’s the skiing terrain and beautiful mountain vistas that attracts visitors from near and far.

San Francisco
The whole day at leisure in San Francisco. Standing on a hilltop, watching the fog swirl in through the Golden Gate, it is easy to understand why so many consider San Francisco the most beautiful city in America.
