Travels With Ernie — Ernie Spends the Holidays in Historic and Picturesque Williams, Arizona

I love Route 66! It is an iconic combination of fascinating history, dreamy nostalgia, exciting adventure, and incredible scenery. What more could an adventuresome dog ask for, let alone all of the peoples? But, dogs have a tremendous advantage over peoples, because we are low to the ground, and can really explore this place as no human can. And, Williams, Arizona is the ideal place to experience Route 66 during the holiday season.

Uranium mine currently in operation at the Grand Canyon.

Representative Paul Gosar's Misguided and Misleading Opposition to the Proposed Greater Grand Canyon National Heritage Monument

Special interests consisting of private companies and members of the Arizona legislature are opposed to the establishment of the Greater Grand Canyon National Heritage Monument because it would prevent expansion of uranium mining around the Grand Canyon. Currently, one such foreign company, based just 6 miles from the rim of the Grand Canyon, is mining and selling uranium to the world market.

Part 2 of our story recalls how the City of Sedona was approached by the Grand Canyon Trust in order to adopt a resolution supporting a twenty-year withdrawal of a million acres surrounding the Grand Canyon from mining activities. What seemed like an obvious "yes" to the resolution turned out to be a bit more complicated.

John Carpino plays and sings favorites at Cruisers Cafe in Williams, Arizona.

The Ultimate Sedona Day Trip: Cruisers Café and the Music of John Carpino in Williams, Arizona

It’s a sunny, cool, and beautiful afternoon in nostalgic downtown Williams, and the quaint shops and restaurants are bustling with activity. Suddenly, the air is filled with the pleasant tunes of Arlo Guthrie, Bruce Springsteen, the Rolling Stones and the Beatles, and some catchy tunes that we didn’t recognize. The music attracts us like a powerful magnet, and is emanating from the outdoor patio of one of our favorite Williams hangouts, Cruisers Café on Main Street. The music blends in perfectly with the nostalgia of Route 66, and the historic and picturesque Williams downtown. So, we can’t help but enjoy lunch on the patio and enjoy more of the enticing music.
