Grand Canyon

Happy Halloween!

Yesterday we took the Grand Canyon Railroad train ride from Williams, AZ to the Grand Canyon Village. The train ride is about 2 hours (each way) then we had 3 hours to wander around the South Rim area. It was a fun outing and so beautiful. We’ve been to the Grand Canyon before but it’s been years ago and the Canyon is just so impressive I could visit it numerous times and enjoy it. It was chilly up there, it only got up into the low 50’s, but for walking around it wasn’t bad. Our friends Ron & Marilyn are up here camping for a few days so they dog-sat Cheye for us. Sounds like she had a fun day too, we were told that Cheye loves hot dogs and tortilla chips… :o)

Speaking of chilly, it’s been rather cool here in Cottonwood also. We had been enjoying the low 70’s when suddenly last Monday the temperature started dropping. Wednesday it didn’t make it out of the 40’s, we even had a few little tiny snowflakes on Thursday. Now we are gradually warming up and should be back to 70’s (and possibly 80’s) this week. Yea!!!
