Day 28

We spent the morning in the game room playing corn hole, pool, and ping pong.

Then I taught the girls how to play Gin.

We had the most amazing burgers at the Red Onion Lounge.

And went antiquing

The girls favorite four letter word (open) sign was out at this shop today.

Then we drove to Winslow.

We didn’t stand on the corner, as the song goes, but we did see the meteor crater!

Here is a piece of the 150 feet wide meteor that hit Arizona long before we were here to discover it.

It’s a huge crater! Comparing it to the ones on the moon, it is mind boggling how big THOSE are!

The meteor hit earth at 26,000 mph

The wind was crazy. It felt like we are going to be blown off the rim!

It was neat asking the girls questions about the things they heard in the museum movie about dinosaur extinction via meteor impact in Mexico 65 million years ago.

They seam to agree that there are some “holes” in the theory as well.

Even the huge meteor that hit Russia in 2013 and was felt for miles, didn’t kill all the people on the planet, or even in that area of Russia.

It’s also is interesting that we saw the fossils of many suddenly deceased dinosaurs yesterday in the petrified forest, very, far away from Mexico.

Yeah, I know the theories. It’s just cool to see first hand what a stretch they are.

We had a relaxing night playing pool after dinner at the Bison Ranch saloon.

This has been a relaxing first stop in Arizona. We head to our second stop tomorrow.
