Hi Friends!! It’s been way too long since I last posted. I hope all is well with everyone, and that your 2023 has started-off on the right track. 🙂
Life has been busy, but I’m so glad to be finally share some photos from my family’s relatively recent trip to Northern Arizona. We visited the Grand Canyon, Sedona, Wupataki National Monument, Flagstaff and Meteor Crater National Landmark. All amazing and awe-inspiring destinations.
I’ll let the images speak for themselves, but here’s a couple of cool nuggets of information about some of the spots we visited:
- The Wupatki National Monument protects over 2,600 Native American archeological dwelling sites built and occupied by the Anasazi and Sinagua tribes. Over 900 years ago, the area was home to thousands of individuals, who were forced to evacuate due to the eruption of the nearby Sunset Crater Volcano.
- Arizona’s Meteor Crater is the world’s best preserved meteor crater due to its ideal position in the arid climate of the American Southwest. Formed 50,000 years ago after an asteroid travelling 26,000 mph collided with Earth, this amazing crater is a whopping 550-feet deep and 2.4 miles in circumference. Due to it’s moon-like characteristics, NASA has used this site to train astronauts – beginning with the fabled Apollo moon missions of the 1960s/70s.
Enjoy the images! Looking forward to connecting in the comments. Have a great week! 🙂
