the giant crater
Near Winslow, Arizona, there is a huge crater that was created by a meteor strike thousands of years ago. I had to see it. After all, I was "in the neighborhood" so to speak. There is a museum in the main building that gives a great explanation of the crater's formation. Outside, overlooking the crater, there are several observation decks on various levels. The viewing is great from every level. Astronauts did their training here before their moon walk expeditions. The astronauts are honored for their achievements with a large inscribed plaque in the museum courtyard. The size and depth of this crater is quite amazing. Amazing is an understatement. It's more than that. Come see for yourself.
