Hi Colleen. you could try and click on the "directions" button at the top of the screen. Enter your start point and your end point and Multimap will calculate your route and also the approximate time it will take.

Distance from Barstow to Bishop is about 4 hours to 4 hours and a half (around 200 miles, but on a two-lane road the whole way). It's about another 80 miles (2 hours on a two-lane road, part of which is over a major mountain range) into Yosemite Valley.

Keep in mind that this road (from Bishop to Yosemite Valley) is closed during the winter because of snow, and if you have to go around the mountain range it will take you an additional half-hour or so to go the other way (Barstow to Bakersfield, then north to Fresno, then take highway 41 into Yosemite).
