Location:
Below the southwest corner outside the impact crater
Scale: Width of the rocks in the foreground is approximately 1-2 meters

We've made it to the southwest corner of Barringer Crater.

In the photo on the left, the large blocks in the foreground and the hummocky hills beyond are all part of the ejecta blanket. The ruins on the right of the photo are the remains of an old school house.

In the photo below, if you look closely you can see the visitor center where we started from, and the Caretaker Trail, which we'll be taking to get down inside the crater.
