That route is simply what Mr.Goog says is shortest, I'm not sure if the linking route between I-5 and 395 is IBA friendly, or if it has too much traffic.
Anyway.... see you there!
395 has a couple of 7000 - 8000 foot passes and many miles over 6000 feet of elevation between the NV state line and the turn off for 190 into Death Valley. They could be seriously snowed in or even closed in late March. Have a plan "B" ready.
The 95 south through NV to the 6 into Bishop will get you around the highest passes on 395, might add mileage though.
