It has been a few years since we did this hike.
Once a year, Meteor Crater gives out free reservations to hike the rim of Meteor Crater and visit the museum free.
I have 6 reservations.
Let me know if you want any.
In a day or two---I will also offer them via FHC's Meetup site---an online bulletin board service paid for by FHC and administered by Deb L. We get a lot of people who come with us w/o knowing that there is really a club.
One person has offered his abode if we ever want a place for a club potluck.
Let me know and I will contact him.
First come/first get for a reservation for the crater walk---with a waiting list kept.
$8 gas money.
Unless we go on through Winslow and take the road to the Hopi Buttes about 6 miles to Little Painted Desert County Park and do a semi loop hike of about 2-3 miles looking at petrified wood that is not as colorful as that in the National Park. Then, $10 gas money.
One year---we even went on to visit the Hopi villages---but, that was a long day.
Let me know if anyone is interested in a full length of Secret Canyon backpack while water is a certainty.
