You will not believe this! Kids and I were stopping for gas at a Union 76 station in Williams AZ. I am fumbling for my credit card and suddenly there is someone washing my car window!! Abby and Evan couldn't believe the way I was freaking out!! It was awesome -- she came out of the service station and cleaned my window until it shone!! Do you remember when that was the way it was always done? I was trying to explain to the kiddos about the young man who would come out of the station, pump your gas, wash your windshield, and check your tires you never got out of the car! Sigh! Those were the 'good old days'.
Well, after that adventure for me, we headed to the Grand Canyon. The kids were totally excited and really awestruck. The mobs of people also made their impression and hearing languages from all over the world. We heard a good lecture on the geology of the park by a park ranger, hit the visitor's center and market plaza where we had some lunch. It was a perfect day. We tried to look for California condors which have been introduced to the canyon. There were some big birds soaring around, but not sure.
The Grand Canyon is truly an amazing place.
Abby drove us back to Williams. I hit the spa and the pool for a bit. From our marathon drive yesterday I ended up with a pulled muscle! No doubt!!
Tonight we walked main street at Williams and had supper. The kids said it reminded them of the movie "Cars" and the little town of Radiator Springs AZ. All the little shops highlight Route 66 which is fun.
