Arizona Tour October 2009
The Arizona state flag
Sunday 25th October 2009
After a very pleasant journey from London with British Airways I spend the night in the Hilton Garden Inn Phoenix airport. Sunday morning and it's Back to Skyharbour airport by the hotel shuttle bus to collect the car. Very little traffic early on a Sunday morning. It's a good time to start driving on right. Headed south from Phoenix to Tombstone - "The town too tough to die". When I had finished in Tombstone I saddled up and headed for to the sunset (Got in the car really and drove to the hotel in Tucson). Pictures show The OK Corral, Tombstone courthouse and Boothill graveyard.

Just a short drive 10 min from the hotel to the Pima air and space museum. I also took the coach tour of the Davis-Monthan Airforce Base. A small selection of the many photographs I took today. If your not interested in aircraft, move along. Nothing to see here.

A 400mile drive north from Tucson to Page, close to the border with Utah. Had to buy some Petrol for the first time today. To fill up needed just over 10 US gallons and cost $25 (approx 42 L for £17). Very variable weather today. Sun, rain, even a dust storm. Snow is forecast for tonight. Only two pictures today. My Rental, Sorry, Hire car (Below) is a Pontiac G6.

The Grand Canyon
No more words are needed and frankly I am too tired.
Friday 30th October 2009
Driving to the hotel in Williams from the Grand Canyon last night I passed an aviation museum I didn't know was there. So today I went back to visit the Valle branch of the Planes Of Fame Museum. Later I drove along the longest remaining stretch of the legendary Route 66. It's now called Historic route 66 and is 86 miles long.
