On the Doorstep...

Another long day on the road has brought us at last to Flagstaff, Arizona, the doorstep of the Grand Canyon. We had all kinds of weather today except snow, which is expected tomorrow, if not overnight while we sleep. We even saw a spectacular rainbow arching radiantly over the high desert terrain outside Kingman, Arizona around four o'clock this afternoon. We took it as a good omen and were delighted by the play of light and color in the rain-washed clarity of the rarefied air.

Now more than 800 miles from home, after a simple supper, we retired to a remarkably economical, comfortable and compact hotel room for a restful and much deserved repose.
