So... The Grand Canyon... I was amazed and awestruck. It was totally worth the steep entrance fee. We will definitely be going again! For me, it was the best part of the trip. Little Man claims that the Grand Canyon was not as good as the space center but better than the aquarium. Squeaker just kept saying, "All done canon". Humph, kids.
We spent the night at one of the lodges there along the southern rim. That allowed us to check out the sunrise from Yavapai Point before our long day of driving. It was wonderful, cold, but wonderful.
The drive west on I-40 parallels Route 66, so we were able to 'get our kicks'; as well as make progress. Recommended stopping points: Seligman and Kingman. Stopping points to skip: Peach springs.
We arrived in San Diego around 8:30pm and after running around like crazy, headed off to dreamland in our new, temporary home with Ga-Mommy. Home Sweet Home... Finally!!!
