As we left the Grand Canyon we heard from many that it would be worth taking a two-mile detour off the interstate to visit the little town of Williams. It's main focus seems to be that it is along the famous historic Rt. 66, which travels from Chicago to LA. It's largely ignored today as a major route, and rather has been labeled a scenic "by way."
Williams is a bit touristy but in a "down home" kind of way. A talking bear greeted us as we passed by, Elvis was there, as well as a store full of coca cola memorabilia. And lots about Rt. 66 and therefore, cars.
It was a fun quick stop with a lot of weather. A storm blew in, left, the sun came out, then a fierce wind came up and the temperatures dropped. I never thought of Arizona as a state with weather worth talking about, but we certainly experienced a fair share during out days there.
