Fortunately, we arrived early enough to take the short drive to Meteor Crater Natural Landmark. It is billed as "the best preserved and first proven meteorite impact site on earth." There is a nice Visitor Center with lots of displays and information about the site and easy access to the walkways and overlooks around the crater's edge.
We spent about an hour touring the site beginning in the Visitors Center. There we found informational displays about the formation of the crater and simulation videos of the meteor's impact. Then we went out onto the walkways along the north rim where there are several viewing platforms. As usual, we took plenty of pictures of the crater and the surrounding desert.
There are viewing platforms at various levels.

After visiting the gift shop, we headed back to the RV park for the night. Tomorrow we should arrive back at Road Runner RV Park in Las Vegas just in time for our appointment at Camping World Monday morning.
