Route 66 / Meteor Crater

The crater is HUGE! The floor is 550 feet below the rim, equivalent to a 50 story building, it's over 4,000 feet across and 2.4 miles in circumference. The rim is about 150 feet above the desert floor, so that makes the bottom of the crater about 400 feet below surrounding landscape. This what you get when a 60,000 pound rock lands in the backyard.
