Meteor Crater and Winslow Arizona

  Meteor Crater and Winslow Arizona

 Back in 2010 I took a trip to Northern Arizona to see Meteor Crater, The Rock Art Ranch and Winslow Arizona.  I think I took some cool pictures.  Check it out.


                                   It was March and it had been snowing in the Flagstaff area. 


                                                Meteor Crater from 5 Miles away.
                                                             The visitor's Center.

                                                    

                                           The Bottom of the Pit. Can you see the Astronaut?
                    Looking back at the San Francisco Peaks near Flagstaff from the rim of the crater.
                                       On to Winslow Arizona. "Staning on the Corner".


                                                     La Posada Hotel in Winslow.



                                         La Posada is like a museum and art gallery in one.
                           After staying the night in Winslow, it was on to the Rock Art Ranch which is a museum and a working 70,000 acre ranch run by cowboy Brantley Baird. 



  
                                      They say these glyphs could be 9,000 years old. 



                  I had a great time visiting Meteor Crater, The Rock Art Ranch and Winslow Arizona

    1. It was great. Old Cowboy, Brantley Baird shoooed the Buffalo away from the gate we were passing through like they were kittens.

  11. I wonder if this area is still as you remember it. My husband and I went to Florida Keys and Miami this past summer. With Hurricane Irma having come through and tearing up everything in it's path, it's got me thinking twice about sharing my summer adventures on my blog. It's absolutely crazy how quickly things can change. But, at the same time, it's always fun to remember the travels we have done. And sometimes things don't change for years at a time… I think that Meteor crater looks crazy awesome and would love to see it!

    With Love,
    Mandy

  13. Similar trip to one hubby and I took in 2009 with MIL, we drove from Vegas in one day and when we got to the Crater, MIL said she'd stay in the car and wasn't that bothered so we went without her, enjoyed a long drink and cake and read every single sign and explored every exhibit, she sat in the car for 4 hours.....lol

  21. Timothy,

    Winslow Arizona brings to mind the Eagles "Take It Easy" lyrics. Now this song is gonna be stuck in my head. All. Day! :) Oh well... it could be worse,right? These photos are totally awesome and I, especially love the snow and desserts scenes. Talk about a contrast! I've never been to the dessert with or without a horse but I hope to visit one someday. The landscape is so different from the east and deep blue skies over head seemed to be even bluer. It's interesting you mentioned the glyphs because there is a place in the western North Carolina hills we stumbled on Judaculla Rock Petroglyphs. It's basically quartered off on a piece of farming land but to find such a exhibit in the middle of nowhere was wild and amazing. Thanks for sharing and please feel free to join me on not-so Wordless Wednesday!

  34. We visited the Meteor Crater back in 1987 when we still had the kids home. We stopped on the way to Colorado. I remember thinking on the way how barren everything was. We were following the sign. It was a long way to go to see a big hole in the ground, but the kids enjoyed seeing it and they saw first-hand what a real crater looked like.

  37. Visiting from A Gathering Of Friends party. I found this fascinating Timothy as hubby & I are star watchers & find asteroid impacts interesting.

    The terrain looks very similar to places in our outback here in Australia. And the rock art like our ancient indigenous rock art also found in the outback!

    You're most welcome to join me in a cuppa at Tea With Jennifer.
