The Grand Canyon Railroad RV park is nice. They allow you to use the hotel's exercise room and pool. The buffet restaurant is very good too for a nice breakfast before you board the train. Williams is a nice town too. Take time to go walk the town and stop in the shops.

I always go online and order the travel guides for the states we are going to. Lots of good area specific local information.

Do Meteor Crater and "and Stand on the corner of Winslow AZ and look for a girl in a red Ford truck" Good Flying J in Winslow and dry camping at the lake a few miles out of town.


I think it was "A GIRL IN A FLATBED FORD" anyway Meteor crater was closed when we stayed at the rv park, could drive up but no hiking, too hot anyway.

Lived in Rapid City for 4 years long ago but one thing we learned is the weather changes often and is unpredictable and will change a lot in a day or two. Only month we didn't generally have snow was July. Some things in Sep may be closing up but less crowds when school is in session. We have been back several times and We think Deadwood has become a tourist trap and the gambling has ruined the environment. Boot hill is still worth a visit. Also Crazy Horse has become expensive and touristy but worth a visit, best view is from the road. Lots of great scenery in the park and things to do, even a cave tour nearby.

Already much better here. Yard mess is cleaned up. 30 degrees this morning but highs forecast 80 degrees through the weekend. Then very seasonal, 65-70, lows in the 40’s, no precipitation for the next 10 days.

However, radar is showing snow, southeast part of the state.
