Driving from Death Valley to Grand Canyon South Rim (VIDEO)

Our next stop in our epic road trip after Death Valley was Grand Canyon’s South Rim near Cameron, Arizona. The total distance is 430 miles, with mostly flat roads and we covered this distance in about 8 1/2 hours of driving. (We were averaging about 50 miles an hour during our trip due to the RV and the tow vehicle). We passed by Las Vegas which is only 100 miles from Death Valley. Below is the timelapse video of our drive, if you’d like to see what the drive is like.
