Meteor Crater in Arizona

Experience the impact! 🙂 More than 2 million tons of TNT was said to be the force of the celestial object that made this remarkable planetary crater upon impact, a huge hole in the ground.

One of the tourists’ comments was it could easily be the most beautiful of sights. And I say indeed and it was even more beautiful than the Grand Canyon itself!

The Horseshoe Bend was so named because of the horse-shoe shape bend of the river. Perhaps Continue reading “Horseshoe Bend : A Must-See in Page, Arizona”
