We are currently residing in a small town of Williams which houses almost 4000 people. We arrived at around 6pm last night and got a chill as soon as we stepped out of the rv. It was a cool night and not even the fire was enough to warm us up - the wind cut straight through! Lucky we have the heater and a few layers of clothes. We stopped at Walmart before we left vegas (hence the late arrival) to get some more supplies and more pillows. The ones we received were dreadful, it's hard to get out of that place once you're in there is so much stuff.
Today we headed into the little town of Williams to see what it's all about. Very trendy town along Route 66 and most shop windows have their own personal sign of when they opened up. All quite proud to be on the 66. We walked the main street and stopped for a coffee - we translated our australian english to american so the waitress could understand coff-ee. It sounds the same said slowly but apparently 'how's it goin' at the beginning doesn't translate and is misunderstood easily.
Great Coffee!!- and a croissant before we finished walking the street. It was early, not too many people were about and a few shops were still closed but people were slowly appearing out of their jumpers and hitting the street/s (there isn't a whole lot of streets)
Next stop Bearizona- consisting of 3 miles of drive thru wildlife park to see black bears, wolves, Bison and also a walk through area with otters, beavers, baby bears, foxes - all the cute stuff that isn't a great idea to get too close to.
It was EXCELLENT! Except for a minor beaver being zapped by the electric fence but aside from that we both loved it. Mike was a little apprehensive at first because they have had cases of the wolves getting a little too close to vehicles. But there was no worries at all, And the baby bears were just too cute. They are just 2 months old. One was dreaming and flinching Awwww :)
They also had Crows trained to take tips and one of the worlds largest owls the Great Grey Owl. (The spooky Halloween one).
Tonight we are at the Railside RV Ranch eating our $2 microwave dinners - they are pretty darn good too! We will definitely be looking for microwave pizza when we get back home.
There is rumours of possible snow about. A Very slim chance. We are hoping for some but not holding out breath. We can see it on the mountains so we'll see if anything comes of it.
Here they have a shuttle which will take us to the train in the morning for a day trip to the canyon. It will be a nice break from driving will report back then.
