March 2007 - From Kanab to Lafayette, Indiana and Back
We've been working long enough to save enough money to go back and get our car out of storage in Lafayette, Indiana. We decide to take Amtrak from Flagstaff, Arizona to Chicago to Lafayette.
Our journey begins on an early morning in March, 2007. Our boss takes us toPage, Arizona and to the airport to pick up a rental to go to Flagstaff. We luck out and get a convertible Mustang - RED, absolutely beautiful and the weather was perfect to have the top down. It takes about 3 hours to get to Flag and the train didn't leave until 6 am the next day anyway, so we were able to take our time and go through the Grand Canyon South Rim (we still like the North Rim better).
Flagstaff, Arizona is home to Northern Arizona University so there are several bars full of college students and it was a blast. There are a few old, really old historic hotels in town that we would have stayed at, but we were on a budget so we stayed at the least expensive one for us this time - maybe we'll stay at the others another time.
