Meteor Crater, Arizona to Home
Well, this is pretty much the last thing on the trip.
Meteor Crater, Arizona. I can't even count how many times
I drove by this great site, and never could convince my travel
partner to stop. Well, this time, it was just me, and by
golly, I spent as much time as I wanted here on this day.
In the distance, the low hill across the horizon is the outer
edge of Meteor Crater. At this point, I'm about 3 miles
This is a Google Maps image. The visitor center is at
the top. You can see motorhomes in the parking lot...that
will give you some scale.
On the day I was there, the winds were howling, about 50
miles per hour on this ledge!
Well, this is the last photo of the trip. Outside the
Meteor Crater Visitor Center is a monument to the astronauts of
the United States. On the bottom left is my distant
cousin, Alfred Worden. This is the second time in this
trip that I've gotten a photo of his name on a wall.
This trip was awesome. I want to do it again, with better
knowledge of where to stop, and what to see longer. Next
time, I won't do it alone, though!
