Vegas to Zion to Bryce question


flying in and out of Vegas, thinking 3 days/nights in the 2 parks, then 2 nights in Vegas with a day trip to Hoover.

is there a loop so we don't double back? any other parks to squeeze in? looks like arches is too far for this short trip?

We just got back from a similar trip and I thought that 1 night at Zion was sufficient while 2 nights at Bryce was better than 1 night because the high elevation at Bryce makes for thin air and it was hard to breathe as we were hiking. The scenery at Bryce is spectacular. Hiking was harder because of its high elevation; it took us longer and we were out of breath and tired because of that. Nevertheless, it depends from where you originally are and if you are used to high altitudes. We weren't used to the high altitudes and we were panting in Bryce. Just my 2 cents.
