Well that sucks.  Probably safety reasons.  Don't they know that safety and fun just don't go in the same sentence?  

You should come check out the unbelievably flat and non-visible Chesapeake Bay impact crater.  You can't really see it at all.  The only hint of it is the curve in the northern shorline of both Norfolk and Virginia Beach.  Thats it.  But 35 million years of estuary and river sediment tend to cover things up.

Don't knock it till you try it.  You won't like it, nothing to see.  However, we have zoo, an aquarium, beaches, beaches, Navy ships, Navy flying things, etc.  It's a rather neat area.  Oh, and history stuff too.

Great image, the Arizona crater is well preserved for it's size.
But not the best preserved one, there's smaller craters that are very pristine since they're more recent, but got more vegetation on top already. So the Arizona crater do stand out for the fact that it's found in a desert and therefore easy to see.
