Meteor Crater is a meteorite impact crater about 37 miles east of Flagstaff and 18 miles west of Winslow in the desert of northern Arizona, United States. Meteor Crater lies at an elevation of 5,640 feet above sea level. It is about 3,900 feet in diameter, some 560 feet deep, and is surrounded by a rim that rises 148 feet above the surrounding plains. The center of the crater is filled with 690–790 feet of rubble lying above crater bedrock.
A geologic wonderland, world-renowned Valley of Fire has 2000 year old petroglyphs carved into massive red sandstone formations in the Mohave Desert. Located some 16 miles south of Overton, Nevada, this state park derives its name from red sandstone formations, the Aztec Sandstone, which formed from shifting sand dunes over time.
