We left Sedona around mid-morning and headed for the Grand Canyon. On the way, we stopped at Slide Rock State Park, in hopes of being able to let Pandora go swimming.
Unfortunately, when we got to the top of the steps overlooking the creek, there was a big sign banning all dogs from the creekside. Pandora was none too pleased.
So we kept going up to Flagstaff, then turned west on I-40, the freeway that basically parallels the old Route 66. We turned north at Williams, and after stopping for lunch, headed up to the Canyon, which neither one of us had ever seen before (!).
Totally. Amazing. The colors, the light, the vastness. Too much to take in all at once and we were glad we had the whole of the next day to experience it.
