Road to Meteor Crater, just outside of Flagstaff, Az

Photos by D. Bowden 1998
There are lots of lonely roads like this out west. This one leads to Meteor Crater: the best preserved meteorite impact site on Earth.
50,000 years old
4100 feet across
Over 3 miles in circumference
570 feet deep

Look closely and you will see the little camp at the bottom of the crater.
