    I was thinking 2.5 each way, thus 5 hours total. There is a time change, also, between the two locations, if any appointments are made. T

There's a large group of us flying out to Vegas from Canada to celebrate our girlfriend's daughter's 21'st birthday. We're only there for 4 days. As I'm not a casino person, I was looking for a way to get out of the big city for a day and I stumbled across Zion Park. I still can't believe how beautiful it looks! I'd never even heard of it before. Now it's become an obsession, I jut have to see if with own eyes. Then maybe I can talk my family and friends into taking a trip down there with me next time.

We've never been to the park - or to Vegas before, so we're a little nervous about being on our own. I tried to contact a few places in Springfield to see if they what they would charge for to take either 2 or 4 of us on a 4 hour guided hike. One wanted $150 per person and the other wanted $175.00!
