Oct 8, 2018 - Williams AZ, Grand Canyon Railway RV Park

We departed Homolovi State Park on the morning of October 8th heading west to Williams AZ. We arrived at the Grand Canyon Railway RV Park and got set up in our paved, back in, full hook up 50 amp site. .. The morning of the 9th was cold. There was a good hard frost on the windows of the car. We dressed for the colder temps, and brought Bentley over to doggie day care. We had scheduled to take an Inner Canyon Tour which left at 9 a.m. As it turned out, we were the only two on the tour today. and, because it was only two of us, we would be...

/// Wednesday - September 12, 2018 A Travel Day: Woke to beautiful blue skies and we took our time breaking camp and preparing for today's trip. By 9:30 A.M. we departed Show Low and took our back trail to Flagstaff and then continuing west on I-40. The road conditions were mostly okay but we did hit a few rough spots and some road construction west of Flagstaff. We also encountered a strong head wind. We have not had to deal with much wind all season. Departing Show Low I noted that the engine in the Ford F-350 was running a little rough....

Jul 25, 2018 - Arizona, Part 2

We waz robbed! Vivian and I were enjoying a quiet train ride back to Williams, Ariz., from the Grand Canyon when these bandits boarded the train and demanded our valuables. We handed over some money and they left us alone. Whew! Actually, it was part of the Grand Canyon Railway experience that took us to the Grand Canyon. Before boarding the train in Williams, the performers staged a wild west shootout. The two-hour ride to the canyon included a singing cowboy for entertainment. The ride ended at the Grand Canyon Village. How do you...

Jul 24, 2018 - Arizona, Part 1

Wind makes driving a high-profile vehicle very challenging. I remember once towing a travel trailer in Wyoming into a head wind. I couldn’t get the Suburban out of second gear. Once crossing the Delaware Memorial Bridge, we were rocked badly by the wind. Today, we ran into a thunderstorm in Winslow, Ariz. It was a massive storm we could see more than 25 miles away. Just a few miles from our gas stop exit the wind hit. It nearly blew us off the highway as I quickly slowed and struggled to keep the motor home on the road. We made it to the...

May 1, 2018 - Williams, AZ - Canyon Motel and RV Park

Our trip from Holbrook to Williams, AZ was 123 miles of I-40 with white knuckle driving almost the whole distance. We had a 20-30 MPH SW wind with 50 MPH gusts that really made it interesting with all of the trucks on the road. Our steering wheel stayed cocked about 30° with an occasional shift to 45-60° just to try and stay in our lane. We are staying at the Canyon Motel & RV Park just as you come into William, AZ. We have a 50 amp full hookup pull-through that leaves a lot to be desired, level wise. The first site was so unlevel we...

Apr 23, 2018 - Gateway to the Grand Canyon

Well folks we messed up. Booked in Williams, Arizona thinking it was a good place to spend a night after seeing the Grand Canyon. (today's the day ... can't wait) Anyway .. Now here we discover Williams is so much more .. right off historic route 66, Williams has a historic area, a brewery, nightly wild west shootouts, a train station where you can ride the steam engine train to the Grand Canyon, art galleries and so much more. We are already booked elsewhere and have move on but I sure wish we had a little extra time here to explore.

Apr 10, 2018 - Williams, Arizona

. When we went to Grand Canyon National Park a few weeks ago, we stayed right in the park. Leaving, we drove right by Williams, Arizona. That was, as we learned, a mistake, we should have stayed in Williams and taken the train into Grand Canyon. . Williams is a lot like West Yellowstone, a vibrant community geared to the tourist business, with several RV parks and motels, interesting entertainment, restaurants, and watering holes. And, a train that leaves every morning for the Canyon, returning late in the afternoon. A little pricy, but...

Our day took us to Bearizona located here in Williams. It is a wildlife park that you can drive thru or ride on one of the buses that goes thru the part and they explain the animals. Bearizona is approximately 160 acres. Visitors will drive through more than three miles of Ponderosa Pine Forest viewing North American animals in natural habitats when they visit. More animals are exhibited in Fort Bearizona, a beautiful 20 acre walk-thru area, along winding paths which is more of a "zoo" type setting. All of the animals are recuse animals,...

Mar 31, 2018 - Saturday, Williams

We drove to Tusayan AZ, which is the entrance town to the Grand Canyon National Park. It is around a one hour drive but well worth it. The scenery is just breath taking for both of us, told Candy we need to get our DNA checked to see if we have Native American or Cowboy blood in our veins since we like it so much out here. We arrived at Tusayan which is a little town with hotels, restaurants and the National Geographic Visitor Center. One goal we had was to see the IMAX film of the Grand Canyon, and it was worth the drive just to see the...

Mar 29, 2018 - Flagstaff to Williams,AZ

So we get up yesterday morning and realize we only have about a forty minute drive to the Grand Canyon Railway & Motel, our next stop in Williams, AZ. We decided to drive back out Rt 66 towards old downtown Flagstaff and browse some of the shops, bars, etc. I found this classic white leather “dream catcher” at a native Americans gift shop. Yes, it looks cool hanging from the rearview mirror in the pony. Getting hungry we found this cool 50s diner called Galaxy Diner near downtown on 66. We had lunch there and it was great!! The pot roast...

Mar 29, 2018 - Thursday, Grand Canyon

We took the Grand Canyon Railroad today to visit the Grand Canyon. It is a 2-1/2 train ride one way thru the forest and desert of Northern Arizona. The train was scheduled to leave at 9:30 am and we did leave on time. The people at the train station and on the train were very accommodating for me, they helped me get up on the train and they have a lift for my scooter. Carol was the lady that was the attendant for our car today. They provided nonalcoholic beverages and breakfast rolls and items for the journey to the Grand Canyon. As we...

Mar 27, 2018 - Tuesday, Williams AZ

Well we are back to Camping World today because the satellite does not work. Spend most of the day there because it needs a part and guess what, they don’t have it. All they have is an entire satellite system but it is a newer version and can’t steal parts off it for ours. Since I bought the extended warranty thank goodness it will not cost me to fix it. They got ahold of the factory and they didn’t have the part, but would have to make a new one which will be 3 days to make it and then ship it. After many phone calls between Gail the...
