We stopped by the Grand Canyon Railroad RV Park but they were full on Monday morning. I called Canyon Motel & RV Park in Williams Arizona and they had openings. We camped at Canyon Motel & RV Park last year. Its a Passport America campground but charge extra for a third person. The park has some nice back in sites for Passport America members. The office staff are very friendly. The office clerk was knowledgeable about the campsites and the town of Williams. The only problem we had was the lack of afternoon shade at our site. Our site was #14. It was about $62.00 for two nights.
We decided to have breakfast at the Pine Country Restaurant in Williams. The decor was cute. The roof was solid pine. The cafe had a nice home feel to it. The food was okay. I had the veggie omelet. Kevin had his usual 2 eggs, sausage, hash browns and toast. Kris ordered the biscuits and gravy. The coffee was hot.
National Monuments, Geocaching and Route 66
We explored the Sunset Crater Volcanic National Monument on our first day in Williams Arizona. The trail we hiked is called the Lava Flow Trail. We hike right by the lava. The trail was easy to follow. It was a refreshing hike. Next, we explored the Walnut Canyon National Monument. We walked the Rim Trail at Walnut Canyon National Monument. The Rim Trail has a great deal of plant life. The plants in the area were used for so many daily activities. Its amazing! We saw a snake sunning himself along the trail and some ancient ruins. The ruins always amaze me. It’s incredible how long they’ve been standing. Then we did some geocaching on the way home.
The town of Williams Arizona is a quaint place. In the afternoon we walked the town. I saw a great deal of Route 66 stuff.
Kevin set up the bbq on a table outside. We had bacon wrapped fillets with corn for dinner then we looked for another geocache near the campground. Later that evening Kevin and I watched Gotham on tv, read our books and played on the computer. Kris played on his computer most of the evening.
Happy Family Time!
