Road Trip ! - Southwestern US (Part 6) - Bedrock City (Arizona)

The southwestern US has all sorts of roadside attractions (otherwise known to some as "tourist traps").  Some of them are better than others.  Bedrock City, located about halfway between I-40 at Williams and Grand Canyon, has to be one of the most entertaining.  I've heard it was built in 1972, and I'm not sure they've done much to it since.  Heather and I drove up to it in 1994, but we didn't go inside then.  We did this time.  The Flintstones was always one of my favorites, and still is even today.

I tried to call in to the office to check my voice mails, but for some reason it didn't work.

We were the only ones there, and it didn't take us long to come to the conclusion that the light covering of snow on the ground probably helped the appearance of the place greatly.  Still, it was worth the $4 each to get in just for the high entertainment factor.

After we checked out all the buildings, and went across the street to fuel up the Xterra, it was time to move on.  Our next stops would be at Walnut Canyon and Montezuma's Castle National Monuments, to check out the cliff dwellings.  Our final stop for the day was Scottsdale.
