Photos from Meteor Crater, Arizona

These photos are from the Meteor Crater by Meteor City, AZ. This giant hole in the ground was created about 50,000 years ago when a meteor crashed into the Earth at an estimated 26,000 miles per hour. It is pretty amazing when you look at the size of the crater and think about what kind of devastation it must have caused at the time. One moment you are surrounded by forests, then vast expanses of nothing. It was very windy, with gusts up to 70 MPH, which the locals say is the norm.
