I can't remember if this stop was before or after visiting the Petrified Forest, but Meteor Crater is very close to the park. This site is privately owned and I though it was a bit pricey. Adult tickets are $18.
Meteor Crater is nearly one mile across, 2.4 miles in circumference and more than 550 feet deep. The collision occurred about 50,000 years ago.
The red circled area is a piece of debris that is the size of a house!
I forgot to post these photos last week with the Petrified Forest.
Route 66 used to run straight through Petrified Forest.
1932 Studebaker at the Route 66 section of the park.
That evening we had dinner in Winslow, AZ and went in some shops in the downtown area. We ate dinner outside with Finn, and for some strange reason Finn was terrified of the ice cream truck that was right next to the patio. You can see it in his face. Poor boy.
Our next and last stop is Cadillac Ranch.
