The train leaves for the Canyon at 9:30. At 9:00 there is a Cowboy gun show at the depot which the kids didn't want to miss.

The RV park had kennel services so we put Marley there for the day. We aren't sure how he would take a whole day in the motorhome by himself. Sugar doesn't hear and just wants to sleep. We knew she would be okay. She is a veteran at traveling with us.

The train goes 65 miles and takes 2 hours and 15 minutes. They have lots of entertainment and play games which makes the trip go by fast. We arrived around noon. We walked through the Hotels, gift shops, and took in the views and had lunch. It was a lot of walking and it was hot. The 3.5 hours was just the right amount of time to spend before heading back.

Jay had been to the north rim with us. This was Ava's first time at the Canyon. She was surprised at the colors and how deep it was. She wants to be an artist and said maybe some day she will draw it.

The train headed back at 3:30. Again, there was entertainment, including cowboys robbing the train.

We were back at the motorhome around 6:00. Jay heard there was a gunfight on Route 66 in Williams at 7:00. We headed to town and took in the gunfight and walked around town. We had pizza and headed home.
