We enjoyed the drive to Flagstaff, where we turned northward toward the Grand Canyon.
Many of the Flagstaff businesses date back to the Route 66 heyday.

We took the scenic route north, through the Kaibab National Forest.
The countryside is beautiful, but I wouldn’t want to live here. Residents in this area are truly “off the grid” providing their own electrical power, and trucking in their water.

Our days travel seems to have really taken us back in time, as we stay overnight in “Bedrock”, located in the small community of Valle, about 30 miles south of the Grand Canyon.
