To Williams, AZ and Standing on the corner...

Today the wind was "only" about 30 MPH so we moved our home to Williams, AZ, the Gateway to The Grand Canyon. We climbed from about 3,000 feet to 7,000 feet during this trip. The canyons and mountains were spectacular. We started seeing snowcapped mountains to the north and soon discovered that we were seeing them from over 40 miles away. There are twin peaks towering 12,560 feet over Flagstaff. As we closed in on them, we were able to appreciate just how huge that they are. Soon after setting up in Williams, we headed east on I-40, which took the place of historic Route 66, and ended up "Standing on the corner in Winslow Arizona..." When we were planning our southwest venture, I saw in Steve and Vicki's Postcards and then more recently, Robbie posted on Facebook that he was "Standing on the corner..." and I have not been able to get that old Eagles tune out of my head. Today we did it. It was cold and windy but we were "Standing on the corner..." and loving it! We are truly "...get your kicks on Route 66!" We are so blessed to be able to see and do all of these things that we have dreamed about for years. Tomorrow we will see The Grand Canyon!
