Grand Canyon!

Sarah On The South Rim Grand Canyon

Hopi Country

Today took us west from Canyon de Chelly across the Hopi Reservation and to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon. we had a long drive, but a good time. The reservation is very poor. We drove up on Second Mesa as well as stopped at the Cultural Center and Museum were we had a pleasant lunch.

The South Rim was cold and dreary as we arrived in the late afternoon. We stopped at several overlooks on our way to the the village, and climbed around while taking in the immensity. Just before sunset the the sun broke though the clouds and illuminated the northern and eastern walls. Nice! Album Here

We are holed up in Willaims AZ on old 66 which serves as Main Street. A fine dinner at the Pine Country Diner! Tomorrow we turn for home in earnest on I40 West.
