Meteor Crater


For labor day weekend we decided to go to meteor crater with our good friends the McKissens. We had a great time checking out the giant hole in the earth that according to Isaac may have killed all the dinosaurs. It was a beautiful day and the company was good so here are some pics of our visit.


Isaac is giving an animated description of exactly what happened when the space rock hit earth. He entertained everyone around with his stories and enthusiastic description of the really, really, really, really big hole!



These types of things always make me appreciate the miracle of life and earth. We are such small specs in this universe. I don't remember the measurements of the hole but just to give you an idea of how big it is there is actually a mine at the bottom with like major equipment working. Can you see it? Yeah neither could we without a telescope.
