Go West Young Man! Flagstaff, AZ to Anaheim, CA

Not quite the breakneck pace of our first three days, but still many miles and many great sights from Flagstaff to Anaheim by way of the Grand Canyon.  The Grand Canyon--well it speaks for itself, and no photos can do it justice.  But here's a few anyway.
 Just south of the Grand Canyon on Route 64 is Bedrock City, an authentic 1970s era roadside attraction that is struggling for relevance and ultimately survival in the 21st century.  It is up for sale, so its quite likely that its days are numbered.  Look for a complete tour in a future post.

Across the beautiful, albeit desolate Mojave Desert. 
Route 66 sites in Kingman, Needles and Ludlow.
We'll be at Disneyland for the next two days.  Check 2719 Hyperion for Disney-related recaps.  We'll hit the road again Friday.
