Palo Duro Canyon State Park, TX

We stopped at the Palo Duro Canyon S.P. for a couple of days, to take a break. This park, approximately 25 miles south of Amarillo, TX, was another CCC project in 1933-34. This is the second largest canyon in the country. Today we made a 6+ mile hike in the canyon

on the Lighthouse trail. The Lighthouse rock formation is 310 feet high and has been designated a National Natural Landmark. The pictures show it close up and also from a distance. The last two pictures show views of our campground as seen from the edge of the canyon.
