Shuttletrain’s Wanderings-Grand Canyon
Welcome back to Shuttletrain’s Wanderings. This time Mrs. Shuttletrain and I headed west for our honeymoon, to spend Thanksgiving at the South Rim of the Grand Canyon. We chose AMTRAK and the Grand Canyon Railway to get there. We left Washington, Missouri on a Sunday afternoon and head west to Kansas City where I proposed to my future bride.
We arrived at Kansas City Union Station and headed to the Westin at Crown Center. We took some pictures of Union Station from our hotel room.
I took some pictures of Downtown Kansas City, Missouri nighttime skyline.
On Tuesday night, we boarded the Southwest Chief and headed west into the Kansas night.
We awoke in Colorado and enjoyed the sights of the desert.
The desert looks just like the pictures of it in the textbooks when I was growing up. We arrived in Williams Junction, AZ where the van to the Grand Canyon Railway Hotel picked us up. But, we will continue with that part of the wandering in Part Two
