Meteor Crater and Standing on the Corner in Winslow Arizona
Well here we are at Meteor Crater RV Park for two nights as we head home over Route 40. I'm glad we stopped here. The park is much nicer than I had pictured it, with ample sized sites and a couple of dog runs for Mirra to get some much needed exercise. We arrived yesterday (April 24th), and will be leaving early tomorrow morning for Albuquerque.
We explored Meteor Crater this morning, and it was well worth the $14.00 admission fee (each). We enjoyed the movie, the museum, and viewing the crater. It's amazing to picture the meteor hitting at 26,000 mph and making a hole in the earth this size - more than a mile across and 550 feet deep.
The guided tour was canceled because of windy conditions. We have winds gusting up to 40 mph today, and there are some thunder storms expected to come through here this evening. It snowed last night in Flagstaff, and will do so again tonight - but we're at a lower elevation here, so it will just be rain.
Winslow, Arizona is just 20 minutes away from Meteor Crater, so of course we had to take the ride into town so that we would be "Standing on the Corner in Winslow Arizona" - me with my Eagles sweatshirt, and Bob with his Eagles cap.
That's all for now - take it easy!
