Hello! I'm doing a trip through the Mighty 5 next week, and I have a question about driving logistics into Zion. Our plan is to leave Bryce Canyon Friday morning and drive to Zion with enough time to do the Narrows. I made a gear reservation for Friday morning and need to be there to get outfitted by 10am.
We have a campsite reserved in Watchman, so I know we have a parking spot that comes with that. But I'm not sure how long it will take to get into Zion, regardless. So I guess my question is two-fold: If we arrive at the outfitter by 10am, and then go into Zion to park, will we have enough time to do the Narrows justice? (I'm not sure how far we will go, but I definitely don't want to feel rushed!) And the second question is: To arrive at the Springdale outfitter by 10am (or an earlier time that makes more sense), what time should we leave Bryce Canyon?
