Just off Route 66 and I-40 is perhaps the best-preserved meteor crater on Earth.  This National Landmark is the largest impact crater is almost one mile wide, 2.4 miles around the rim and 570 feet deep. The meteor hit 49,000 years ago.  At the site is a fabulous movie theater, discovery center & mineral shop. We hiked the outdoor observation rim trail where I acted like Holly pushed me & I fell over the rim and climbed back up. The movies “Starman”, “Meteor” & “Damnation Alley” were filmed here.  The kids loved the crater.
