First stop this morning was gas which Regan negotiated without an issue. I had seen a sign for espresso at quite a cool looking cafe so I had buggered off to try it out. It was the best latte I have had so far, not NZ standards but good for round here. We had a quick walk up and down the Main Street, lots of Route66 souvenirs and cowboy boots. Then off to the canyon. We entered the park just after 10 and ...
... to see a view or to visit some other archaeological sites. We would highly recommend a trip into this park.
We came back into town and found a small park playground for Reed and the kids to run around.
Tomorrow we plan on driving to Flagstaff and visit the Petrified Forrest. We will spend 3 days in Flagstaff before we head into the Grand Canyon.

... smack bang in the middle the moment it was hitting. So scary but grateful for my Kathmandu clothing! The ranger also explained the bears in the park were close as they had sightings today. Why oh why aren't they safe and sound in there caves??? There may only be ten of them but that's way too close for my comfort. Check out the holes in a tree. I was amazed a woodpecker made them :)
3 Near death experiences in one day! I wonder what tomorrow will ...

For the $100.00 a night I EXPECT a hair dryer and a larger bathroom; You have to sit on the toliet to shut the door. On the positive side there were a lot of outlets in the room to plug things in.
