I sang a concert there with Sixth Wave last weekend, for 1000 excited high school kids at a choral festival. It doesn’t get much better than that!
The third cache on that list is at the infamous Bagdad Cafe, where I had to peer into an old trailer to get information to tell me where to find the ammo can.
The proprietress LOVES visitors, and insisted on taking my photo behind the counter.
I could see snow on the mountains as I drove toward Kingman:
It had recently snowed in Flagstaff, too, and this was the view from my hotel balcony:
The next day, I had lunch with an old acquaintance from college marching band. We hadn’t seen each other for at least 30 years, but had stayed in touch and reconnected on Facebook. Turns out he’s also a geocacher, aka Eldon Viewer, with about 50 finds! We found one downtown after having great Mexican food:
The day after the show, I took one of our group to the airport to pick up a rental car. Icicles were in abundance all over town, but these hanging off the terminal roof were particularly spectacular:
That’s a giant raven on the trash can, and it talked to me while I photographed. It did NOT quote E.A. Poe.
On the way back to the freeway, I waded through knee-deep snow to get this one:

No photograph can do it justice – it’s just too large and complex.
I did get a few photos, and hope they give some sense of the beauty, if not the incredible scope of the area:
Perfect snow shapes:
Some train shots for my Dad – this was in the station at Grand Canyon Village – I love the bell sounding in the video!
I grabbed a few on the road trip home, including a couple in historic Williams, AZ on Route 66:
And with that… I was back in So Cal! Until next week… cacheee onnn….
