On our way back to Williams, we picked up a couple of geocache finds. We visited the Veteran's park in Williams as well and picked up two more finds before heading east.
As we drove down I-40, I knew we would come to the town of Winslow. The last time we drove through here, I wanted to stop and get a picture of us standing on a corner as the song says. Laurie had been sleeping, so I just drove through. This time I was determined to do it. As we came to the town, I headed for the downtown area so we would truly be in Winslow. To our surprise, there is a park in the center of town dedicated to the song that made them famous! A corner of the park is paved with flat stones, surrounded by a wall with a mural and on the street is a bright red flatbed Ford truck. We waited our turn to take pictures and look around. We had snacks and beer at a pub there, too. There is a virtual geocache where you answer questions about what you see to get credit for the find. Finishing up, we headed out of town. Just on the edge, there is a 9/11 memorial with two steel beams from the twin towers. We later stopped for the night near the state border.
