We have a short 4 day 3 night trip coming up soon. We arrive in Vegas at 7:30 am on a Saturday and then will need to get the rental car. As of now, we have one backcountry night reserved in Zion (Sunday Night) but Saturday night around Zion is pretty booked up and we'd love to see Bryce regardless.
Is it realistic or even worth it to get the rental car and get to Bryce Canyon in time to get a camping spot around or in the park on Saturday if we are leaving Vegas around 8:30 am?
Also, on Sunday in Zion we are hiking the west rim trail, likely top down from lava point. What's the best way to do this and get back to your car? Is getting to west rim trial from Bryce too much on Sunday morning?
Thanks for the help!
