SEGMENT 4--Lake Havasu, AZ to Winslow, AZ

Leaving Lake Havasu City heading North to Kingman and then on to Flagstaff, AZ. We arrived in Flagstaff just hours after a series of freak tornado's had just passed through the area and were fortunate enough to get pictures of the aftermath. One tornado hit right along the highway. This is a picture of CamperWorld in Bellemont just outside of Flagstaff.

In preparing for my journey, I found a website which locates the restaurants on Food Networks' show "Diners, Drive-in's, and Dives".  In Flagstaff, along Route 66 we had lunch at Salsa Brava. Little Mexican Restaurant where I had Chimichanga Blanco and Grandpa had Cajun Shrimp Tacos. They also had a salsa bar.

Off to Meteor Crater near Winslow, AZ. Not really worth the $15 they charge to view the crater, but none the less it is a huge hole in the ground in an otherwise barren, flat landscape. Grandpa had never seen this crater before.

Stayed in a rest stop tonight.

Grandpas Joke Corner:

My Uncle Abner was a member of a church in Arkansas.  The church was having a meeting to decide what to do with some extra money they had collected. Abner rarely attended church 'cause he was a bit of a rebel, but he decided to go to this special meeting to see what was up.

Some one in the congregation suggested they buy a chandelier for the church with the money. The room started buzzing in agreement.  

Uncle Abner, being the rebel he was, stood up and said, " Now just wait a minute, I don't think we need a chandelier for the church. First of all half of this congregation doesn't even know what a chandelier is... and the other half can't even spell "chandelier". What we need in this church are some lights."
