We'll be staying in Las Vegas for 3 nights this August and are planning a visit to the Grand Canyon by road. From reading the forum I soon realised that the West Rim is not recommended and I should have planned an overnight visit to the South Rim, but as I didn't really want to lose a night in LV still considered a very long day driving and doing the South Rim in a single day.
However, I've just had another idea, which you may all tell me is not possible and a daft idea but any advice would be very much appreciated. As we'll be leaving LV to drive up to Zion (staying 2 nights in Springdale) would it be possible to visit the North Rim on the way? As that day was only being put aside for driving is this an option?
If this is a possibilty, how many hours drive would we be doing and what are the roads like on the way to the North Rim?
