Grand Canyon Bound

The trip was a fundraiser for Wheels Museum so we met there before hopping on our Amtrak train
We’re all settled in on the Amtrak train to Flagstaff.
From Flagstaff, we took a shuttle to Williams and the Grand Canyon Railroad hotel. This is the lobby.
The rooms were spacious and comfortable and they had a lovely pool
We had breakfast at the Fred Harvey restaurant before walking over to the train station across the street.
The Grand Canyon rail goes from Williams to the Grand Canyon. On our way, we saw antelopes, javalinas, an elk, a coyote, cows, ranch horses and wild horses.
Scenery along the train route.
The Grand Canyon is spectacular.
Another view of the canyon.
We found cephalopods and other fossils in the original grand canyon soil.
Another beautiful view of the canyon.
A great vegetarian sandwich at El Tovar.
The view from our lunch table at El Tovar. To have a chance to snag one of the rare window seats, make the earliest lunch reservation and cross your fingers.
My friend’s sandwich
Apple caramel creme brulee. Yummy.

A super rich chocolate dessert.

We saw a beautiful sunrise on the way back to Albuquerque on Amtrak.

I love to travel, do arts and crafts and photography. But most of all, I like to combine them all.
