|This is the place we ate at the night before|
|I love the colors!|
|This could be one of my favorite signs.|
|I think this one is famous, maybe.|
We saw more cool stuff just off the highway. Like these pueblos.
The highlight of our day was going into the petrified forest national park. Trees turned to stone are always a big hit with the kids, and the painted desert was magnificent. While were there we also saw some ancient hieroglyphs. The largest concentration of hieroglyphs in... eh-hem... the slkdjfl... the largest concentration in somewhere.
The road through the park is old Rt 66. It is one of those rare times when you can't see the interstate anywhere, the road is small and slow, and for a minute you feel like you've gone back in time.
|Pictures never do anything justice.|
|More rock stumps!|
We cut back through Holbrook and ended our day in Flagstaff. We ordered pizza from a local place that delivers, swam in the indoor pool and settled in for a less-than-good nights sleep. Oliver has n't delt with being away from home very well. Or it could be that he's sleeping too much in the car during the day. But a free continental breakfast always wakes me up and gets me ready for the day. Have I ever mentioned that I love free stuff?
Good morning from Flagstaff! We're off to the Grand Canyon!
