My flight from New York is supposed to arrive in Las Vegas (McCarran) at 11:49pm. I plan on taking a shuttle to the Rent-A-Car center and picking up the car I have made a reservation for. I plan on visiting Zion in the morning however, I am not sure when/how I should drive there.
I would like to hike Angel's Landing in Zion the next morning. I have read that arriving early morning is best because of crowds and heat not to mention that Zion's parking lot fills up quickly.
Would it be safe to drive in the middle of the night straight to Zion? Or stay in Vegas for the night and leave for Zion early in the morning but get there much later?
