Day 3

WILLIAMS - GRAND CANYON RAILWAY - GRAND CANYON NATIONAL PARK

This morning, watch out for the infamous Cataract Creek Gang, as lowly a group of varmints that ever rode the range. Then, climb aboard the historic Grand Canyon Railway; pass through majestic Ponderosa Pines, the high desert and the Kaibab National Forest while hearing tall tales and folklore about the area. Keep your eyes open for wildlife, as it's not uncommon to spot elk, mule deer and pronghorn antelope sauntering through this wild, woolly region. Nothing can prepare you for the Grand Canyon, one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. With a Local Specialist learn how the Grand Canyon was created and examine rock samples from the colourful sedimentary layers formed as the sea washed in again and again. Join your Travel Director for an unforgettable walk along the rim.

GRAND CANYON NATIONAL PARK - MONUMENT VALLEY - LAKE POWELL

Ferde Grofe was so stunned by the spectacular beauty of the sunrise over the Grand Canyon that he composed his Grand Canyon Suite in 1931. But all you have to do is watch and maybe whistle in amazement as the skies glow and brighten with the coming day. Drive along Desert View Drive, featuring jaw-dropping views of the Grand Canyon, before entering Navajo Country. Here you can poke around the historic Cameron Trading Post and hunt for a great piece of Southwest Native American art. See why Monument Valley is a favourite location for movie directors. As you're bouncing along the valley floor in an open-air vehicle, you can just imagine John Wayne leading the U.S. Cavalry on a ride along the magnificent mesas. Wrap up your exciting day at a lakeside resort tucked into the red rock at amazing Lake Powell. Kick off your boots and have some fun at a poolside pizza dinner.
