Straight from our trip in Monument Valley, we left for the 4hr drive to Flagstaff, AZ. Seriously, I could just drive all over Arizona just looking at the amazing scenery for ages. It’s amazing how the landscape changed so much from the desert in northern Arizona at Page and monument valley, to the mountainous landscape of flagstaff. It honestly felt like we’d drove into another state somewhere as it was so autumny when we got there with pine trees and changing leaves on the trees.
When we got there that afternoon, we just explored historic downtown flagstaff a little and went for dinner at an amazing Thai place before settling in to watch the season premier of the walking dead. Yes, we actually did that haha! The next morning, we had a quick little wander and shopped around historic downtown again and watched a few trains go by before heading off to Meteor Crater. Honestly, I was a little dissapointed with it as it was pretty expensive for what it is, but it was an experience. We went on the guided tour that they do which they tell you loads of facts about the crater and how its actually pretty small in comparison to a lot of impact sites, though it is the most well preserved. There was a group of students carrying out research at the bottom of the crater the day we went and we could just about see their tent. The scale of it is amazing! After we left there, we headed off to our next stop – Sedona!
