Oct 18, 2019 - Bearizona

Just a quick one tonight....today we left Cooper on guard duty while we went to Bearizona, a drive through wildlife park here in Williams. It was a pretty nice day compared to yesterday’s wind storm. It was still blowing a gale when we went to bed last night, but we woke early (remember the trains?) to a beautiful, calm morning with almost no breeze. The wind picked up a little bit as the day wore on, but nothing like it was yesterday. Bearizona was pretty cool, especially the drive through area where we saw deer, Rocky Mtn goats, Big Horn...

Oct 17, 2019 - Williams, Grand Canyon And Smoke

10/17 Well we arrived in Williams, Arizona on Monday. The drive from Holbrook was easy enough; straight west on I-40 all the way. We’re staying at the Grand Canyon Railway RV Resort for the week. It’s a pretty nice park, very clean, paved, fairly level spaces, with a gravel path all around it for walking dogs. We originally picked this park because of its proximity to the Grand Canyon and that it has an on-site “ dog resort”. Turns out that the “dog resort”is actually just big kennels, where each dog is separated from the other dogs....

Sep 25, 2019 - Sunset Crater

RV Airbnb? Day 21 Today is the last day we will spend exploring Route 66 before we hit the National Parks. The town of Holbrook has a museum in the historic old courthouse so we visit here first. What a gem. The museum provides information on Navajo County’s past which includes ancient pottery, Native American art displays, artefacts of Holbrook’s early pioneers and businesses, and a tour through the old county jail. The displays and objects show how life was lived from the end of the 19th Century until the late 20th. The old schoolroom...

/// September 1, 2019 A Travel Day: We departed Dolores, CO by approximately 0700 hrs.

The road conditions today were mostly good, the traffic was light with the exception of a shop stretch of Hwy. 84 near Cameron, AZ. This section of hwy was also quite rough. We made a rest stop at the Cameron Trading post, had a quick bite to eat and hit the road again for the climb into Flagstaff. Entering Flagstaff the AC on...

May 21, 2019 - Canyon Gateway RV Park - (5/12 - 5/14/19)

We didn't have a place reserved in Williams, but were able to get a site here. We were in 6A. Many of the sites are back-to-back, but we were in front. It worked very well for what we needed. The park is conveniently located next to 2 gas stations, one is a truck stop. Once we got settled we drove into town. Williams is located on historic Route 66. It is a quaint little town with a number of places to eat and interesting stores. We drove through and then out of town to take a ride. We ended up riding up Bill Williams Mountain to the top...

Apr 24, 2019 - Williams, Arizona

We arrived at the Grand Canyon Railway & Hotel RV Park in Williams, Arizona around 4:00. This is a beautiful park with asphalt pads and full hook-ups including cable. They have an indoor pool and spa. We went out for dinner at Jessica's Family Restaurant. The owner was a nice man from Greece. The food was good and after dinner we walked down historic Route. 66. There are a lot of shops with so many souvenirs. On a more serious note, I noticed when we pulled into the park that there was gear oil on the front of my 5th wheel. Upon further...

Jul 25, 2018 - Arizona, Part 2

We waz robbed! Vivian and I were enjoying a quiet train ride back to Williams, Ariz., from the Grand Canyon when these bandits boarded the train and demanded our valuables. We handed over some money and they left us alone. Whew! Actually, it was part of the Grand Canyon Railway experience that took us to the Grand Canyon. Before boarding the train in Williams, the performers staged a wild west shootout. The two-hour ride to the canyon included a singing cowboy for entertainment. The ride ended at the Grand Canyon Village. How do you...

Jul 24, 2018 - Arizona, Part 1

Wind makes driving a high-profile vehicle very challenging. I remember once towing a travel trailer in Wyoming into a head wind. I couldn’t get the Suburban out of second gear. Once crossing the Delaware Memorial Bridge, we were rocked badly by the wind. Today, we ran into a thunderstorm in Winslow, Ariz. It was a massive storm we could see more than 25 miles away. Just a few miles from our gas stop exit the wind hit. It nearly blew us off the highway as I quickly slowed and struggled to keep the motor home on the road. We made it to the...
