About 10 AM we packed up and headed south to the town of Williams, the home of the Grand Canyon Railroad. Busses carry passengers each day from the Canyon to Williams to ride the railroad back to the canyon. In the winter, they use a diesel locomotive, while in summer a steam engine, which currently is decorated with lights for Christmas.

Old route 66 is nearly gone, with I-40 taking its place, but the longest stretch of road that exists today is near Kingman, Arizona...which has taken advantage of the nostalgia of "Historic 66" and preserved many unusual sites along the highway and have converted an old power plant into a visitor center.

As we reached the suburbs of Phoenix the evening sky turned beautiful shades of red, orange and pink. The colors were so striking, we had to stop and take some photos of the Sonoran cacti against the vivid sky.
