I'm way behind on posting last year's trip.
Trying to catch up.
Up early and on the road.
As you can see...it's a long road, entering Arizona.
We'd heard of a sight to see, in Winslow.
Remember the old Eagles song....
Standin' on the corner, in Winslow, Arizona...?
Well..Winslow put up a park, to celebrate it.
There's even a 'flat bed Ford', as part of the display.
It's just a wall, to represent a building....with reflections that remind you of the words of the song.
It's a quick stop, about two blocks off I-40, on the old
historic Route 66.
There's a gift shop there, just in case you need a t-shirt to remember your stop.
Next up...just a little west of Winslow...is the site of the Meteor Crater.
We were going to pass it by. But, what the heck....
we're here..let's go.
It's a big hole! It's almost a mile across. And, it's deep enough for a 60 story building.
Pretty impressive, and worth the hour or so stop.
Heading back out on I-40, we're nearing Flagstaff.
We turned up Hwy. 89.
And then, onto Hwy 64,,,heading for the East entrance to the Grand Canyon.
There are little stalls along the highway, where the Native Americans sell souvenirs.
Another place we stopped along this highway, required a 'donation' to enter.
There are some good views of the east end of the Canyon.
Along this highway, you can see how flat it is, at the top of the Canyon.
The river eats it's way deeper and deeper.
We're almost at there....the Grand Canyon.
