We woke up this morning in Holbrook, AZ and after eating cereal for breakfast set out to see the Grand Canyon with a few stops along the way of course. First we stopped at the Wigwam Motel, a motel made of cement wigwams. When we first arrived we thought it was strictly a tourist attraction with old cars parked out front of the wigwams, so we went into a wigwam because the door was wide open. It took us a little while before we realized that they were actually rooms you could still rent out and the only reason the door was open was because the cleaning crew was cleaning rooms. We scurried out rather quickly and that was a good thing, because next thing you know someone was there who actually belonged in that room. We then continued on to the Petrified Forrest. Long story short, millions of years ago this area was wet lands with giant forests and dinosaurs
