Dora, Wanda, Taylor, and Mark decided to take a trip on Route 66 in the fall of 2010. Here's Taylor in front of the Powerhouse, the R66 Museum in Kingman

The drive along Route 66 was very pretty

We stopped at the Grand Canyon Caverns, very pretty cave. It's not near the Grand Canyon, it gets its name from GC water traveling 200 miles to get into this cavern. Our tour guide knew everything, and more, about this cave. It has an interesting history.

The cave is a constant 56 degrees with only 6% humidity, a "dry cave."

Wanda and Taylor get an earful.

The Grand Canyon Cavern was deep, we got a good cardio workout.
