I stopped there in 2003 with my son after driving from Pa so he could report to Luke AFB in Glendale. We thought it was great but I've never been able to get my wife interested enough to go see it. "A big hole in the ground? Forget it." It was nicely presented then, probably better now. For some reason they sunk a mine shaft in the center looking for the meteor. Back then they had a plywood astronaut standing by the fence in the middle to give you some scale. It's hard to grasp that the Grand Canyon took millions of years to form, on the other hand you stand on the rim of this and try to imagine it was made in seconds by a giant rock from space. There's a campground right where you get off the 40 and a fairly new casino just to the west. Meteor Crater is worth a stop.
Wayne, have you been to Sedona?
