Next Stop Williams and then the Grand Canyon

To see the start of our trip go here

After eating dinner in Kingman, Arizona we drove east on Hwy 40 to Williams, Arizona.  Willams is just south of Grand Canyon.  We stayed the night there, after walking around the cute town and then drove to the Grand Canyon.

 We bought a car pass in Tusayan, a town right outside of Grand Canyon National and parked at the visitor center in the National Park.  Within GC park there are 4 shuttles you can take to different viewings of the South Rim.  Kurt had been to the North Rim many decades ago and said that the South Rim was more beautiful.  I always thought the canyon went North-South but was surprised that it went East-West

I'm afraid of heights so I was apprehensive of approaching the canyon.  Of course there are rails everywhere and many places you can walk out to see more of the canyon.  I usually stayed near the main path and let Kurt, Ben and Natalie wander.  I would try to find a relaxing spot to look at the view and people watch.  We all took turns taking photos.

Here is my Photo Story that I made in Photobucket.

Thanks for the kind comment. They story boards are new and easy to use. I was even able to go back and crop the first photo and put it back in. At first I had that photo in the back and it could be moved or delited and put back in. It ended up being easier to delite and put back in since there were so many page.
