On the return trip from the Thanksgiving Vacation Black Canyon Run to my home in New Mexico on I-40, I passed by the infamous Meteor Crater, over 550 feet deep, and about a mile across. Recently, I have been exploring the “Scene:Options:EasyPanorama” function on my Nikon Coolpix L610 and LW110 point-and-shoot cameras and concluded that the crater would made an ideal subject.
So, I made about a one-hour stop, toured the museum, played with the extinction event asteroid simulator, and got the shot above. Click on the thumbnail to see it in its full-sized glory. The damage was done by a rock about 15 meters long traveling around 26,000 kph.
(Surprising how little it would take for the universe to end life on earth as we know it)
