"But I have found that in the simple act of living with hope, and in the daily effort to have a positive impact in the world, the days I do have are made all the more meaningful and precious. And for that I am grateful." - Elizabeth Edwards _ Meteor Crater in Arizona is the best preserved impact crater on earth. _ At 170 meters (560 ft) deep and 1.186 kilometers (0.737 mi) in diameter, this photo doesn't do it justice - this thing is massive! _ 50,000 years ago an nickel-iron meteor measuring just 50 meters (160 feet) across hit the earth at a blazing speed of around 20km (13 miles) per second. The heat generated by the impact was so intense it vaporized most of the meteor. _ Located 37 miles (60 km) east of Flagstaff, it really is in the middle of nowhere but I'm so glad we took the side trip on our #BenderGoRVing trip earlier this year to explore this unique location. Check it out. _ #arizona #natgeolandscape
