When we reserved a spot at the Meteor Crater RV park, I kinda thought we were going to be staying in the actual crater. What gives?
Just kidding. That would have been weird and kind of claustrophobic - even though you can fit 20 football fields and 2 million people inside the crater.
On the bright side, it was only 6 miles from our campsite so we left Phoebe for a siesta at the RV and headed over to the massive crater.
We took a quick jaunt through the museum before watching a film on how the crater was formed and the significance of the crater for all other research and information regarding craters around the world. Who knew?
After the film, we went outside to see the real deal. Um, hello! It was 1,000 times bigger and more impressive than I thought it was going to be. There were three different viewing areas. We went to the top and then worked our way down.
If you look closely, you can see teeny tiny people walking along the top rim in one of the pictures below. Without people as a reference, I don't think the pictures would show the enormity of the crater.
We were very glad we went - and we are hoping that their new million dollar renovation goes towards an RV park inside the crater (again, just kidding).
