We stopped at Meteor Crater near Winslow AZ. The crater was formed around 50,000 years ago, when a nickel-iron meteorite 160 feet across slammed into the Earth.
The crater is 3900 feet in diameter and is 570 feet deep.
Just a basic, down to Earth, laid back type of guy here, who loves the outdoors, the indoors, jazz on the turntable, a fire in the woodstove, the northern lights blazing across the sky, and the company of good friends.
