I wanted to share another part of my trip with you! We also went to the Grand Canyon. I had wanted to get there first thing in the morning, but miscalculated things. When we stopped the night before in Seligma, AZ, I did not realize we were still 1 1/2 hours away. After looking at all the Rte 66 shops(you can see that article here) we got a later start than we expected. It was 11:30 by the time we got to Williams, AZ and we wanted to get to the canyon, we watched the IMAX movie of the Grand Canyon (it was really good except that the first five minutes has topless Indian girls) They had this fun 3-d spot in the courtyard to take pictures.
It was after 1:00 by the time we got to the Canyon and it started storming as soon as we got there!
