Any tips for a quick Grand Canyon ride?

Any tips for a short (36 hour) trip to the Grand Canyon. I want to go scout a few locations and get some test shots. Plus it is a great excuse to ride.

Any simple places to stay over night close but not in the park? (Not camping)

Anything to see in the area that is close? I have a tight time line so I can't get too crazy.

I'm leaving from Vegas

Don't need any gear or packing info just general info on the area/ride if anyone has input.

From Vegas I suggest you head to Kanab, UT via 89A (?), then south thru Jacobs Lake to the North Rim of the Canyon IF it's open - the road from Jacobs Lake to the North Rim stays closed if it has snow as they don't clear it. Then after that you can continue east past the Vermillion Cliffs, then S on 89 to the South Rim. If you 'do' the south rim, stop at EVERY outlook with your camera!
