I am planning to go to the Grand Canyon South Rim next week from Las Vegas. I basically plan to leave Las Vegas early to have some daylight left. I am staying in the "Bright Angel Lodge & Cabins" for one night, so I have a second day there. I do not mind driving in the dark, so I plan to stay in the park until it is dark.
I will be driving in a small rental car. I am in my twenties, reasonably sportive, I have been hiking in National Parks before for maybe 10 days, so not a whole lot of experience. It will be my first time in Grand Canyon (or Arizona for that matter).
What are road conditions likely to be? A lot of snow / ice at the moment (or expected)?
Do you have any suggested hikes? I need to be able to reach the start with the rental car, so paved roads only.
Is there anything available (food, gas,...) around my accommodation? Or any suggestions where I should get gas?
