No, 15 is well south of DV at this point. 95 is well east. Baker is about directly south of DV, in fact some people go that way, turn off at Baker and head north on Death Vally Road - 127, thru Shoshone and on north to the 190. That brings you into DV north of Furnace Creek. 95 is east of DV, north out of Vegas.

Once you go through DV on 190, the last stop is Stovepipe Wells, then you head over the Panamint range into Panamint Valley. From there 190 takes you west over White Mountain range to 395. Going south on Panamint Valley Road to Trona and then west to Ridgecrest also takes you to 395. Going north on 395 takes you thru all the stops VanDiemen just listed, and eventually to Mono Lake to the Yosimite/120 cutoff.

You have to open a map or google maps and follow along.

We juat drove from Yosemite , Sequoia and into Death Valley on RT 190 form the West. We have a 39 foot Meridan, Itasca DP. RT 190 was very steep ( 6% and 8% grades, 8 to 12 miles) you need to travel slow down hill and coming out of the first valley on 190 it is steep. We climbed at 30 mph at one point. I am not sure I would do it again. I will look for an alternate route next time.

We will be posting pictures on our blog RVGR8escape
