Yes you can definitely hike Zion/Bryce in May. In fact it is a good time of the year for hiking in that area. A sedan will do just fine for most trailheads.

The only way you could do the lamb harm by picking it up (aside from dropping it, or otherwise injuring it by handling it wrong) is if for one reason or another it wasn't accepted back into its herd, or if your interaction gave it a reason to leave the herd. Some animals will reject their dependant young if they smell like human, as far as I'm aware this ...

What nuances are you referring to? If you have an atypical foot shape you of course will be able to get a good fit in a custom-made boot. If it's made by a shoemaker who knows what he is doing it should be a lot more durable too. In contrast the high price. What nuances besides quality (fit, durability) and price are there? Maybe the time it takes to get ...

Zion has only one unpaved road you're likely to want to drive on: a one-mile stretch of the Lava Point road. That road is marked on the map as "impassible when wet", which I suspect means an SUV won't do any better than a sedan in bad weather; it's not marked as high-clearance, so a sedan will do just fine in good weather. There are no unpaved roads in ...

Yes it is quite possible. I just did it last week in 1 day, starting at 6am at Porto de la Cruz and after 10h20 of walking with few stops I reached the summit at 3,718m a bit after 4pm. Then you can go down for the night at Altavista (c. 3,200m) and see the sun rise the morning after (with a great view of the shadow of the Teide). You need to book in ...
