It has been awhile since the last update! While we have made sure to follow al the COVID restrictions, I have been able to visit a few states.
Arizona was the first state I visited. It was SO hot. My family flew into Arizona and then started our Western Adventure! This time my grandma, my sister in law and my niece (she is still in utero) joined my parents and I.
We left the airport to meet with my counselor for Pets merit badge. We met at the scout shop which had some great deals- haha. Taylor Bell (who is on the same quest) had been there a week before me.
After finishing the badge, we went to Williams Arizona. It is on historic Route 66. We stayed at the Railway Hotel in preparation for a trip to the Grand Canyon.
Outside the hotel, there was a locomotive. As we were looking at it, we saw “Saginaw Michigan” on the sign. We read the story to learn that our home town had a part in developing the railroad to Williams!
We took a train ride to the Canyon and it was really cool. There were actors on the train that sang and told jokes... the people were super friendly! On the way back, there was a train robbery!
At the Canyon, we weren’t able to go to some of the events because of Covid. The bussing wasn’t available and we didn’t have enough time to walk it all. Maybe next time!
Our visit to Arizona was great! We definitely need to get back to the Canyon again.
