Fodor's Review

This mysterious crater is one of the wonders of Island in the Sky. Some geologists believe it's an eroded salt dome, but others think it was made by a meteorite. It's about a mile, round-trip, to the first overlook; energetic visitors can continue to the second overlook as well for a better perspective.
