I'm thinking of finally getting to Death Valley next month. I'll be flying in from the northwest, so ideally I would like to do a loop. I was thinking of LAS (good flight/fare availability). I'm guessing 3-5 days, including to-from drive time. I want to sightsee and I am an avid hiker, so good trails are a big big plus. LAS has the added benefit of allowing me (maybe) to extend my trip to go see Bryce. I've been going to Zion for 30+ years, but have only been to Bryce once. If I go through LAS, I might also stop by Valley of Fire again, but the trip is primarily about Death Valley and the best route/sights.
