A lot of air-conditioning and a few Cheez-its later, I was feeling much better. When we got out of the car in 75 degree Flagstaff, I completely recovered. That is a summer temperature that I could get used to! I forgot my camera in the car, so don't have any pictures of the very cool and funky Flagstaff, but I hope we can go back some day. We ate at the Flagstaff Brewing Company where several dogs were leashed to the fence surrounding the outdoor eating area, calmly waiting for their owners.

After dinner, we continued to Williams where we stayed before continuing to the Grand Canyon. This was the view outside our hotel window. Flagstaff is on the original Route 66, and both it and Williams seem to be suspended in the 1960's. Many of the signs and hotels looked to be from that time, but are well maintained and still in use. This isn't a great picture, but you can see one of the cool signs

Fun! I'd love to go back and take photos. And 75 degrees?? Perfect summer temp.

Wasn't Flagstaff where Clark Griswold got shot by the bartender? Or was that where he stole that money??

Melanie - I don't remember, but it's funny you should mention it. One of our first mornings, that movie was on in the hotel! :)
