We're leaving the Wigwam Motel, it's 6 AM, cold 20 degrees. The sun is shining

so it's a good day. We're traveling without the group today, on our way to the

Grand Canyon. There is alot to see between here and there, we'll miss the

Meteor Crater, oh well. But, I did stand on the corner of Winslow Arizona,

what a fine sight to see. Winslow has other things to see as well, to bad we

couldn't spend more time there. We met our good friends from Gold Canyon,

Arizona just out of Flagstaff, we'll be traveling to the Grand Canyon together.

It is good to see some familiar faces after two weeks on the road. We arrived

in Williams to take the Grand Canyon Railway to the Grand Canyon. It's a 2:15

ride to the rim, we had a continental breakfast, they opened the bar, first

time I've ever had a drink at 10:30 in the morning. It was a fun drink, the

bartender called it the Slimfast. We walked out to the platform at the rear

of the train, watched the terrrain change from high desert to high elevation.

Stayed at the Bright Angel Lodge in Buckey's cabin, the oldest on the rim.

It was recently remodeled and is just beautiful, we walk out the door 20 feet

and we're at the rim. Did a little hiking on the Bright Angel Trail, there is still

a little ice and snow on the trail, watched the sunset from Hopi Point, the

next morning we walked the other way.

Caught the train at 4 in the afternoon back to Williams where we all joined

up with our Corvette friends again. Had a nice dinner together. The next

morning which would be Sunday we said goodbye to Tim and Jo and we

headed to Needles, California with the group.

See the Flickr link for Grand Canyon photos.

Until tomorrow, do it my way, take the highway and get your kicks on Route 66.
