Phoenix, Flagstaff and Meteor
Downtown Phoenix - 5:30pm and it was
still 96 F as I waited at the bus terminal for my bus to
The Amtrak cargo train - about 80 to 90
a day. My hostel was 1 block away......
Historic Route 66, plus beautiful yellow Aspens in the background,
and not to mention the rows of flags that line the council
buildings (I wonder why ?).
Meteor Crater -
a 1km wide impact site from a meteor that hit Earth approximately
50,000 years ago. The meteor is thought to be 75m in diameter and
travelling at 40-50,000 mph when it hit the surface.
One of the Apollo test capsules used at
Meteor Crater to train astronauts in the late 60's and early 70s.
Get your kicks......
