AHOG (AZ Harley Owners Group) Returns to Williams

April 11th, 2014 by Del & Sheryl Terry

Once again about 500-600 HOG (Harley Owners Group) members are expected to take to the streets of Williams, AZ this summer

when the Arizona Harley Owners Group (AHOG) rally returns to town.  The rally will take place from June 5 to 7, 2014. 

AHOG is a statewide organization comprised of all of the chapters throughout Arizona.  They meet yearly to have fun, compete in riding events and elect state leaders for the following year.

Registration for the event will take place in the Visitor Center parking lot near the Babbitt-Polson Warehouse Stage just West of the intersection of Railroad Avenue and Grand Canyon Boulevard starting Thursday morning the 5th about 8am.  The rally group’s bike games will take place at the Rodeo Grounds.

 Williams is a friendly town where HOG owners can have a lot of fun.  It’s easy to walk around town, have great rides, and is close to the Grand Canyon, Jerome, and Kingman.

Williams is a great rally venue where HOG owners and their partners can enjoy a great time while spending 2 or 3 nights at Grand Canyon Bed & Breakfast, located in a quiet neighborhood less than a mile from the festivities and with off-street parking.This year’s rally will include bike games, guided motorcycle rides, a motorcycle show, a parade through town, dances and concerts.

Grand Canyon Harley-Davidson in Bellemont, AZ sponsors the Grand Canyon HOG Chapter, which will put on this year’s rally.If you don’t own a Harley (or any other brand of motorcycle) you can rent one for the event at Grand Canyon Harley-Davidson and ride into Williams in ‘style’.  There are other dealers throughout Arizona if you’d like to rent a bike and ride from you home to the AHOG.  You just possibly might fall in love with the machine and experience and buy one of your own.

The public is welcome to attend any of the events during the rally.

 

Lowell Observatory in Flagstaff, Arizona

March 15th, 2014 by Del & Sheryl Terry

Lowell Observatory -  an astronomical observatory in Flagstaff, Arizona.

Lowell Observatory was established in 1894, placing it among the oldest observatories in the United States, and was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1965. In 2011, the Observatory was named one of “The World’s 100 Most Important Places” by TIME.lowell observatory northern arizona grand canyon bed and breakfast flagstaff arizona

The Observatory’s original 61-centimeter (24-inch) Alvan Clark Telescope is still in use today for public education. Lowell Observatory hosts 85,000 visitors per year at their Steele Visitors Center, who take guided daytime tours and view various wonders of the night sky through the Clark Telescope and other telescopes. It was founded by astronomer Percival Lowell.

The observatory operates several telescopes at three locations in the Flagstaff area. The main facility, located on Mars Hill just west of downtown Flagstaff, houses the original 61-centimeter (24-inch) Clark Refracting Telescope, although its role today is as a public education tool and not research. The telescope, built in 1896 for $20,000, was assembled in Boston by Alvan Clark and then shipped by train to Flagstaff. Also located on the Mars Hill campus is the 33-centimeter (13-inch) Pluto Discovery Telescope, used by Clyde Tombaugh in 1930 to discover the dwarf planet Pluto.lowell observatory northern arizona grand canyon bed and breakfastlowell observatory alvan clarknorthern arizona grand canyon bed and breakfastlowell observatory SOFIA northern arizona grand canyon bed and breakfast

Lowell Observatory’s astronomers conduct research on a wide range of solar system and astrophysical topics using ground-based, airborne, and space-based telescopes. Among the many current programs are a search for near-Earth asteroids, a survey of the Kuiper Belt beyond Neptune, a search for extra solar planets, a decades-long study of the brightness stability of the sun, and a variety of investigations of star formation and other processes in distant galaxies.

In addition, the Observatory staff designs and builds custom instrumentation for use on Lowell’s telescopes and elsewhere.  For example, Lowell staff built a sophisticated high-speed camera for use on the Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy (SOFIA). SOFIA is a joint project of the United States and German space agencies and consists of a 2.5-meter (8.2-foot) telescope on board a Boeing 747 SP.

“Outstanding B&B”

FIVE STARS

“My wife and I stayed here for our anniversary{2013}. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. We enjoyed the layout of the place as our room/wing was separate from the rest of the inn. This made the stay more private instead of us feeling like we were invading someone else’s personal space. The place is also located right at the start of Route 66,  making it very close to some good dinner spots (they had menus for the best of them). However, what really stood out was the personal service. When we got there everything was ready and waiting for us so we could rest after a long day of travel.

“Del is incredibly warm, friendly and engaging and makes you feel like an honored guest. If you don’t like Del as a host then you’re impossible to please! And if you were like us and had never been to the Grand Canyon before you’re doing yourself a disservice by not asking him where the best spots away from the other tourists are. He’s very knowledgeable about the area and  its history. He also lent us a couple pairs of hiking poles, which really came in handy when we took a day long hike down the canyon.

“Sheri’s breakfasts are excellent! She has been cooking for guests for a long time and her skills really show. My wife is more of a picky eater but her plate was cleaned each morning, as was mine! This B&B is really the new standard by which we judge all others we have gone to and will go to, and if we get the chance to go back to Arizona then we are definitely staying here again!”ranking arizona 2014 best of the best arizona business
