Today we view both the Barringer Crater, outside of Flagstaff, AZ. and Walnut Canyon, nearer to Flagstaff. I had never heard of Walnut Canyon, but it is a pretty amazing place. Cliff dwellings are all over the canyon walls. The canyon floor is 185′, nearly straight, below the canyon surface. I have no idea how whomever lived in these cave/cliff sites got up and down the canyon walls.
While we were there thunderstorms passed and it was cool to hear the thunder overhead while walking down the canyon.
The area around the Crater is very sparse, as you can see; kind of a moonscape ambiance.
Tomorrow, Le Canyon Grande
Till next time
