The next day found us in Williams, AZ, at the KOA.

Looks like the smile thing is back again...

The Grand Canyon Railway depot in Williams is part of an old hotel.  They have (or did then) a false front cowboy town, and cowboys had a shoot-em-up before the train left for the Grand Canyon South Rim.

This is an old REA delivery wagon.

On board the train there are singing cowboys, and dulcimer playing ones like this.  There is also free Coca-Cola for the passengers.  It is a great ride up to the Grand Canyon, but there isn't AC on the old cars.  Coke was survival stuff!

Just one more a-pickin' and a-grinnin'!

He really was grinnin'!

Just off the train at the Grand Canyon Village.

I think Dad is in there somewhere...
