"A Yabba Dabba-Doo Time"

During this summer's road trip to California we stopped at many new places.  One of the helpful websites we used to plan our trip was Roadside America.  This website bills itself as a guide to uniquely odd tourist attractions.  We saw several things on our trip that other guides would have considered too weird to list. 

Just outside of the Grand Canyon, we pulled into the parking lot of Flintstones Bedrock City. Inside the park were cement recreations of the cartoon, including a general store, police station, post office, jail, beauty parlor, the Flintstone and Rubble houses .  We called the day before our arrival to double check the hours and someone named Betty answered the phone!  I wonder if that was really her name.  Being the early birds that we are, we sat out on the road early that morning.  Unfortunately the timing of our visit didn't allow us to stop for more than a picture in the parking lot since Bedrock City had not yet opened to the public.  After all, we had to get to the Hoover Dam

In honor of the Flintstone's fiftieth birthday, let's revisit Flintstones Bedrock City.  Well, at least their parking lot.

See those Flintstone-style buildings in the background?  We didn't get to go in those!
