    One night of only two weeks that I rode along with Brian when he was OTR, we got lost and ended up on the city streets right in front of it...much more impressive seeing it close up :)

    Yes.

    Yes it is.

    Worth every moment.

    And when you get to that giant hole in the ground it will take your breath away.

    Seriously.

    They even have some mountain passes out that way.

    No, but I delivered landing gear parts for the FA18 Super Hornet built there.

    Sorry, no photos. Ain't allowed. Top secret government stuff you know.

    A "stock" photo.

    Rumor is they also build these there too, but, *sigh*, that is just a rumor.

    And these too.

    It's a claustrophobic ride inside to the top. Once you are up there you can feel it kinda swaying in the wind.

    I have some pics I will dig out from my stash and post.

    Williams AZ. is certainly easy to find. Just get on I-40 and head west. From Williams you can take a train to the Grand Canyon.
    I drove up to the Grand Canyon years ago. Got out of my pick-up, took a look, took a picture and then left.

    When I went there, we backed the camper up to the edge and sat there eating lunch, with a view of the canyon out the windows. When it was time to get on with the trip I didn't want to leave.

    I'm gonna have to get a night camera, none of my pics come out on the phone cause it's dark out..lol.
    Saw a sweet falling star (meteor, asteroid, whatever) last night, I woulda liked to get a shot of it, it turned lime green as it fell and then burst, just like a Fourth of July firework

    I've seen meteors like that many times. It is spooky and way cool all at the same time.
