FC: Road Trip To The Grand Canyon September 2009
1: After 6 hours of driving we arrived at the Grand Canyon Railway Hotel in Williams AZ. We checked in and then took a walk to look at the town and the trains. Here Kyle stands in front of the train outside the hotel. At this point of the trip, he had no idea that the next day he would be on a train headed to the Grand Canyon.
3: The first place we visited after arriving in Williams, AZ was the Grand Canyon Deer Farm. | Grandma and Kyle pose for a picture before going inside to feed all the animals.
4: Kyle had so much fun feeding the deer. The deer on the next page kept following us around even though we ran out of food, so I had to take his picture.

8: Before the train departs for the Grand Canyon, the cowboys put on a show for the guests. As you can see Kyle had a great time.
