The Meteor Crater site was surprisingly busy.... Leaving me to wonder if Friday's recent meteor crash in Russia's Chelyabinsk caused a spike in visitations. Well, for $16 per person, Meteor Crater in Arizona has to be making a nice profit from the entrance fees. ;)
After paying the entrance fee, we watched a very short 10 minute film in their theater that was worth watching just to get the background info. We also walked through the mini-museum before going out to the impact site:
Stairs down to the lower viewing area. Walking down into the crater floor is prohibited. Which is probably how they keep this crater as one of the best preserved impact sites.
Stairs to the upper viewing area.
