Grand Vacation

Tuesday, July 10, 2007

Well, we just got back from a HOT vacation in Arizona. Did I mention it was hot? It was 117F when we left. Who's idea was it to go camping over the 4th of July week in a desert anyway?

The family and I went camping in Williams, AZ, home to one of the last stretches of Route 66. This quaint little town is home to the Grand Canyon Railway which winds its way to a depot outside Bright Angel Lodge on the south rim. We went back to the Canyon the following day by car, but this time later to beat some of the heat. We were all treated to a wonderful sunset from Hopi Point. By the time we left at 9:00pm the temperature was a much more tolerable 84F.

Our next vacation is only a short few weeks away to our family's favorite place in the world -- Huntington Lake in the Sierra Nevadas. Can't wait!!!
