The Crater

Fifty thousand years ago---give or take a few millennia---a meteor struck our planet just east of Flagstaff, Arizona. It created a giant crater 550 feet deep, one mile wide and 2.4miles in circumference.

Cindy and I had a chance to view this wondrous work of nature on one of our recent jaunts out west. It is the most remarkable sight I have ever seen. And yes, I have been to the Grand Canyon.
