Grand Canyon in January
Ever thought about visiting the Grand Canyon in January? Yes, there was snow and it was cold. It was also so beautiful, peaceful AND uncrowded. In fact, we practically had the RV park to ourselves. We stayed at the Grand Canyon Railway RV Park in Williams, AZ. It was so much fun!!! Of course we took the train to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon. TIP – upgrading to first class tickets is well worth the extra expense.
The day starts out early with an entertaining cowboy show and then ALLLLL Aboard! We were on our way in a restored vintage railway car with a wonderful breakfast of fresh fruits, pastries and OJ. The passing scenery was beautiful and relaxing, but the big show is the Grand Canyon itself. The colors were so vibrant and changed as the sun moved across the sky during the course of the day. Around noon we warmed up with a steaming hot beef stew served in a bread bowl – delish!
After a day of hiking around the canyon, we folded into our comfy railway seats for a sleepy ride back to the RV park. Another TIP – while the Grand Canyon is the main attraction, don’t miss visiting Bearizona and the nearby Deer Farm.
So this is also the trip that sparked a BIG decision. After camping most every weekend after buying 19’ Mosey, I tripped over our darn dogs one too many times. That was it!!! We need a bigger trailer, stay tuned…
