The second day in Amarillo after many friends’ recommendations, we drove to this state park. Palo Duro has been called the Little Grand Canyon, and I can see that. Palo Duro isn’t as long, deep or wide as Grand Canyon, but has all the majesty of it.
The views from the top when you come is magnificent
The road to the bottom is at a 10% grade…that is mighty steep, folks.
See the loop on the left going down further?
Going back up the steep road
Click the photo to enlarge; that white dot is an RV going up the grade.
There is a campground at the bottom of the canyon that is very pretty. Look at the vistas you would see camping here!
If you find yourself near Amarillo, do yourself a favor and go visit Palo Duro Canyon State Park. The $5 per person entry fee is a bargain for how this place is a feast for your eyes and feeds your soul.
Remember, you are loved.
