Day Two to California

We were pleasantly surprised that very little snow had accumulated over night after watching the weather the night before.  Steve had some work to do before we began our second day's journey so we didn't leave Amarillo until around noon.  It started off a little snowy, but quickly cleared up until somewhere in Arizona.

Leaving Amarillo

It was a beautiful drive!  I felt like I was watching a movie- with each turn there was something new and beautiful to see.

It began snowing as we drove up Hwy 64 from Flagstaff to our hotel which was a few miles from the Grand Canyon's South Rim entrance.  We arrived around 10 p.m. and didn't stay up to see the new year roll in since our plan was to get up early to watch the sun rise.  I had a difficult time going to sleep; it had been over 28 years since I'd seen the Grand Canyon!  What a great way to bring in the new year!
