Coconino County, Arizona

This series of images from Flickr user mark_v_socal was taken on a flight from Los Angeles to Orlando, and posted in the Flickr Unknown aerial shots pool, which is a good resource for finding the location of unidentified aerial images. The first image comes from Arizona's Coconino County. The image looks north across the plains in the southern portion of the county. In the foreground is Diablo Canyon, with Grapevine Canyon entering from the left. Dog Valley is in the lower right, and Chavez Pass Road cuts off the lower right corner of the image.

The crater, almost a mile across and about 570 feet deep, was formed about 50,000 years ago from the impact of a nickel-iron meteorite the size of a large house.
