After the previous blog post we continued driving (for a few hours) and eventually camped at a KOA in holbrook.

The next day my mom felt sick but decided to try to drive for a couple of hours. On the way we decided to go to a crater (called Meteor Crater) that was advertised as the worlds best preserved crater and the first crater identified to be from a meteor (see pictures). After leaving Meteor Crater, we only got to flagstaff before my mom felt too sick to drive (she says it is a stomach virus) and we went to a hotel there (hilton garden inn, $65 (same hotel in Washington D.C. cost 109$, see hurricanes hotels and the capitol post for more info on that hotel stay)) where we spent the night.

Today my mom felt like she could drive ("probably at least 200 miles" she said) so we are continuing our journey towards home.
