We went to the Grand Canyon!

On Thursday morning we made the 6 hour drive from my house to Williams, AZ and spent the night there at the Grand Canyon Railway Hotel.

On Friday morning we rode the train up to the Grand Canyon and then took a bus tour.  We stayed at the Maswik Hotel on the south rim of the canyon that night.  I left the wife and kids at the room and walked up to the red line bus and took it out to Mohave Point to watch the sunset.

On Saturday we walked to the nearest bus stop and rode the bus to the Visitor Center.  From there we walked along the rim of the canyon to the geology museum.  When we were done at the museum we took another bus back to our hotel, picked up our gear, and rode the train  back to Williams.  We then made the 6 hour drive back and got home around 2:00 am.  I did all the driving so I got to sleep in a little on Sunday.  We spent most of the day recuperating from the trip and I got out to the shop around 4:00 pm and did some gluing up of the broken tomahawk targets.

Please note that we had an 8 year old, an 11 year old, and my mother in law in the car so the actual drive times varied.
