Meteor Crater

A National Landmark Not Many Know About!

overcast 60 °F

Have you heard of Meteor Crater, Arizona? Well, I heard about it as a kid and always wanted to go there. I think I saw it in a movie and thought, "Wow, gotta see that some day!" So when I noticed that it was only six miles off I-40, our route through Arizona, we had to include it in our itinerary. A 150-foot wide rock from space landed here and created a crater that could hold 200 football fields on its floor and two million spectators on its walls. Sounds like a sports-a-rama waiting to happen! Anyway, don't forget to view these photos through the link to the right. Much better. Don't know why this site won't let you click on the photos in the blog story. I'll send them a note.


And the drive from the Grand Canyon down US 180 toward Flagstaff and I-40 was so picturesque, we had to pull over to take a couple postcard photos:


Now on to our last tourist stop on this trip before we head home: Petrified Forest National Park. Have you heard of that one?
