Photos from the Gila National Forest

Waking up in Springerville, I realized that I had been on the road for two days and had yet to leave Arizona. That had to change. As we headed towards New Mexico we went through the Gila National Forest. It was a very windy day which made for some very clear skies around us. I could see that we were probably going to be headed towards some large forest fires as there was a lot of smoke mixing with the dust in the distance.

Photos from the Painted Desert

After leaving the meteor crater we headed towards the Painted Desert. The Painted Desert is the entry to Arizona’s Petrified Forest National Park. Since the day was drawing to a close and I have visited several petrified forests in the past, I decided that we would skip this one and just enjoy the beauty of the Painted Desert. I have seen it from the opposite side, but it was nowhere near as nice as this.

After photographing the Painted Desert we headed on to Springerville, where we enjoyed a great meal at the Safire Restaurant & Lounge. They make most of the food fresh so it was quite welcome and delicious.

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.
