October 14, 2010 - Palo Duro Canyon State Park, Part 1

Palo Duro Canyon State Park is about a half hour drive from Amarillo.  After paying our entrance fee we headed to the visitors center located in the El Coronado Lodge.  This is where you get a view of the canyon before driving down into it.


This sign is in front of the visitors center.

Lots of nice displays in the visitors center.

Next we drove the loop in the canyon.  Some nice photos along the way.

After having a picnic lunch we decided to take a trail.  We chose the Paseo del Rio trail since it had some shelter from the sun.  It was about 90 degrees in the canyon this day.

Views on the trail.
