Short/long way in which direction?

LEaving LV at 8am.

Leaving PS to return to LV at 3pm.

We were going to do the quick ride to PS and scenic return. IS this a good idea or should we reverse?

If you are taking the Hummer tour I would drive the scenic route first from Las Vegas and return fastest way. I would not take the scenic route starting 3pm.

This must sound like abracadabra to other posters-lol-

Do I understand this right? You want to do a round-trip by car between Las Vegas and Palm Springs in one day? There's no way that could be fun.

That's like doing a round-trip between Detroit and Columbus in one day.

Doing it in two days. Scenic on the way there (even though we are doing Hummer Tour - no repeat) and quick way back.

Thanks. All set, we think. Will post a TR when we return.
