A few weekends ago, we decided to take a trip to Williams, Arizona.
Also known as, the 'Gateway to the Grand Canyon'.
And it happens to be part of Route 66.
We hopped in the car with Miss Daisy, Lucky boy, and Beebee, the official navigator...
and headed up North.
Williams is a sweet little town with most of it's historic buildings still intact.
First stop... lunch at Cruisers Cafe, because more than just about anything, we both like to eat.
As you can tell, the restaurant is full of 1950s nostalgia.
The food was pretty good too.
In fact, John was so serious about the menu...
that he almost didn't realize I was taking his picture, instead of our surroundings.
You can tell by the look on his face that he thinks I'm nuts.
Daisy wasn't really feeling the picture taking...
and neither was Lucky boy,
But Beebee was :)
After lunch, we decided to walk around town and check out the sights.
Like this Elvis, that kind of looks like a zombie.
There were lots of nicknack shops in the old buildings...
a hotel or two...
and a an old steam engine on display, by the train station.
This is where you can take a train up to the Grand Canyon or ride The Polar Express during Christmas.
John took a picture of me, with our "Charlie's Angels"...
and one of us.
Afterwards, it was getting really cold and by that, I mean it started snowing.
So, we got back in the car to check out the side streets.
We saw an old repair shop...
an old building with "a lady of the evening" hanging out the window...
a sweet old church...
an old abandoned school...
and an old house.
Before we headed home, we decided to venture even father out and ended up going through an old tunnel, while a train went over us.
And down the road we went...
until we came across a beautiful lake.
Then it was time to go home.
By the way, do you see the cloud shaped like an elephant?
Or maybe it's just me and John is right about me being nuts ;)
