My husband and I are on a really tight schedule during a trip to Vegas. We are planning to do ZNP as a day trip. Given our jet lag and past performance, I expect we'll hit the road around 6am, Vegas time. That would put us at Zion at 10am, right?
I don't know what the conditions and lighting are like, but I was thinking we could leave ZNP to return to Vegas as late as 5 or 6pm (to be back in Vegas around 8-9 pm).
Here's a description of us and what we're expecting:
*Two adults, love to drive and see beautiful things, LOVE to take beautiful pictures.
*Enjoy easy to moderate hikes, but understand we may not have too much time for that in a day trip to Zion. One short one might be nice, though….
Given these things, I was wondering what you think of this day trip. Feasible? What would you recommend we do as an itinerary in the park? With just one day and a tight schedule, what should we skip (recognizing that it's all awesome and NOT to be missed….we'll still have to make some tough choices!)
