It’s been a while since I have shared another post from our 2019 Great American Southwest Tour. You wouldn’t want to miss out on Monument Valley, now would you?
Well, we’ll get there, but we’re not there yet. There are still a few less famous but still spectacular locations on our way.
Next stop is a quick look at Meteor Crater on our way driving through Central Arizona.
Meteor Crater, also known as Barringer Crater, was created 50 000 years ago by a nickel-iron meteorite about 160 feet (50 meters) across.
It lies in privately owned land, so is not protected as a National Monument. It has been declared a National Natural Landmark.
One last look before we continue on to the Petrified Forest….
