Making Our Way East

Tonight we are in Amarillo, TX - making our way east on I-40. Last night we were in Albuquerque, NM. Between the two is lots and lots of land - and not a whole lot else to see. BUT...between Flagstaff on Monday evening and Albuquerque last night we made three great stops.
First was not too far oustide Flagstaff - Meteor Crater. It is the "first proven and best preserved impact site on earth." "The floor of the crater is 550 feet deep, equivalent to a 50 story building...is over 4,000 feet across and 2.4 miles in circumference." Okay - the picture makes it hard to tell, but it's HUGE. About the middle of the picture are two black dots - they are actually people down a set of stairs about 1/8 the way into the crater. Don't they look little?

Next, well...here's a clue - Hitch is 'on a corner' on a 'Flatbed Ford' - in AZ. Got it?
Yep - we had to stop in Winslow, AZ and take a picture "Standin' on a Corner". The Flatbed is there just for photo opps. And...the song keeps running through our heads - it's such a fine sight to see!

Our last stop was the Petrified Forest National Park. Hitch is at the Agate Bridge - which is actually a petrified tree. It's quite a place - and next to the Painted Desert. Now...there's too many pictures to chose from for a Blog, so it'll have to wait until we're back.

Goodnight for now,
Traveling with Hitch

Back from Va. B Glad to see DB is doing his share of the driving. I quess he is getting the itch to get back east. When it's time, it's time as EW once (many times) said. Safe travel.
