Finally updating, this has been a busy trip!
After we left Las Vegas, we headed to Williams Arizona, which calls itself the "Gateway to the Grand Canyon". We decided to take the train to the Grand Canyon one day and what a beautiful day we picked. The weather was perfect with plenty of sunshine and blue skies. We rode up to the canyon in the observation car to enjoy the scenery, it was a lot of fun and the views were great! We also booked a bus tour at the canyon that took us to several look-outs and then we still had a couple of hours before we had to catch the train back to Williams.
The Colorado River can be seen at the bottom of the canyon in several of the pictures.
We went to the canyon twice and it still wasn't enough! While at the canyon, we also visited the Tusayan Indian Ruins, the Watchtower and several of the historic buildings, but there were just too many pictures to post, and too much information.
