Dodge on the high plain

Here's my Dodge on the high plain between Flagstaff and Winslow at about 5,800 feet.

Meteor Crater is about a dozen miles to the east-southeast (the right side of the horizon here). Meteor Crater is the first confirmed impact site on our planet--created when a meteorite hit about 50,000 years ago. It is easily visible from a jetliner at 30,000 feet. It's not visible at all here, but is nearby.

You've got to love the Western Sky.
