Palo Duro Canyon State Park - Texas

We just got back from a week at Palo Duro Canyon near Amarillo.

It was very nice, but very hot!!

There's a lot to do there, and we tried to do it all.

It looks like the park is surrounded by mountains, but you actually camp down in the bottom of the canyon.




As usual in Texas, we had some spectacular sunsets.






We did the 6 mile hike to the Lighthouse.

Thanks guys. It was great!!

Ed, you're down there near one of our favorite parks...Cagle on Lake Conroe. Nice!!
Our oldest son lives at The Woodlands (small apartment), so we camp at Cagle to visit.

Greg, I agree about Davis Mtn SP. Definitely in our top 3!!

I've seen Cagle, but never been there. A follow RVer has though, and really liked it as well! I reckon we'll have to try it sometime.
