This booklet is a sample of a full-length book.  It is Chapter 23 in Ameritrekking and Highpointing: Discovering America the Beautiful.  If you already have that book, don’t buy this booklet.

This short story tells the tale of the author's visit to Barringer Meteor Crater in Arizona.  When he showed up he was handed a brochure that proclaimed "You are at one of the most extraordinary places on earth!"  That is not an exaggeration.  Fifty thousand years ago, a rock from outer space traveling at several miles per second smashed into what would one day be called Arizona.  Barringer Meteor Crater is the result.  The visit took place in the same year as the first Ameritrek, the subject of the main book, Discovering America the Beautiful.  In this booklet, you can travel vicariously to a weirdly beautiful place and sample the writing in the full book at the same time.

The main book resulted from an 8,000-mile, weeks-long road trip.  Along the way the author visited parks, battlefields, and highpoints, plus much more while driving through 23 states.

Over the years Joseph Whelan drove more than 100,000 miles and spent over a year on the road.  He went to 45 highpoints and many other strange and wonderful places.  He continues to travel and write.  Buy this sample booklet and join the adventure today!
