Palo Duro Canyon is the Grand Canyon of Texas. While, in this rare case, Texas size isn’t the biggest, it certainly is still impressive. Back in the day, the steep walls of the canyon also made for effective fencing, as ranchers kept their steer in the canyon. Today, it is a park where visitors can camp, hike, and come for the occasional activity set in the park. We came for the hiking, but didn’t say “no” to the opportunity of snapping a picture of a rare longhorn.
