Well, I wasn't expecting that
We left a fairly warm Vegas on Saturday morning and drove through Nevada, across the Hoover Dam and in to Arizona. Decided to spend the night in Williams (of course!) before planning to drive to the Grand Canyon Sunday morning. Imagine our surprise when we awoke to snow! Perhaps the fact that is it February and we are at an elevation of over 6000 feet should have given us some clue that this might happen, but we're on holiday and we just expect sunshine all day every day!
So, it's now Monday and we had to spend an extra day in Williams as the snow didn't stop all day yesterday. It has stopped now but there is probably over a foot of the stuff hanging around. We are planning to head to the Grand Canyon this afternoon as, hopefully, the roads will be a little clearer...
