Meteor Crater.

Odessa Meteor Crater

The second largest meteor crater in the U.S. 550 feet wide and 100 feet deep -- but most of that 100 feet has been filled in with Texas dust. Walk the quarter-mile trail and imagine what once was. It's a Crater of the Mind, man.

Odessa Meteor Crater

Nice visitors center! Trail is cleared, but watch for snakes. Informational plaques along the trail. Good stop even though it's not that big of a hole anymore.
