DAYLIGHT SAVING TIME
So, We will spend a day in Utah.
The one thing to keep in mind though, if you are going to travel from
Nevada or Arizona after Daylight Saving Time begins - on Sunday, March
9, 2014 - you should add one hour to your Utah time. That's because
neither Nevada nor Arizona are following the Saving Time, but Utah is.
So if you are planning on arriving in Utah at 7pm (AZ or NV time), you will get there at 8pm on UT time.
ONE OR TWO DAYS IN UTAH
Now, spending one day only in Utah if you're traveling that way is not ideal. Ideally, you'd spend two days. One day on Bryce Canyon National Park, and another day on Zion National Park.
I have been looking at their websites and there is so much to do/see.
OPPORTUNITY COST - COST VS TRAVEL TIME
But we will only spend one, because I decided to take only a 1-week vacation. So the most reasonable choice was to stay as close as possible to the park. We will pay twice as much to stay 5 minutes from the park (Springdale), instead of 1/2 hour (Hurricane).
