September Driving Holiday from Los Angeles to Yosemite to Las Vegas

Jump to last reply

Hello from South Australia!
We are planning a driving holiday in September, and would really appreciate any help we can get. We'd really like to take the most scenic route possible. We are starting in Los Angeles and heading towards Yosemite. From Yosemite we will be travelling to Las Vegas and then back to Los Angeles. We've been to the States before, but it will be our first time driving. Ive done a bit of research, and not sure whether to take the highway 1 and 101 up the coast or whether to go via highway 99 through Bakersfield and Fresno. From Yosemite to Las Vegas, I've heard that the Alpine region via highway 395, 6 and 95 through Bishop and Tonopah is the best way to go. As September is cooler weather, will these Routes be passable?
From Las Vegas to Los Angeles, Ive heard that the quickest way to get back is via highway 15, but apparently much of it is desert and there's not much to see, is there an alternate route to 15?
Thanks in advance for your help
