After the Texan…hiking of course
We’d contacted our friend Tammie’s Aunt Ruth and her husband Larry in Amarillo and arranged to meet them at, none other than, a Cracker Barrel for brunch and then head out to Palo Duro Canyon.
The four of us with this interesting dugout hut that people used to habitate and below is the inside.
According to Wikipedia, this canyon is the second largest canyon in the US, next to the Grand Canyon.
We drove around and found the Lighthouse Formation.
We saw fancy coulees called Spanish Skirts – the photo I thought would look better slightly saturated and I mean slightly.
Then Ruth and her husband Larry took us to a cave and hiked up with us.
From there we went to another hike along the bottom of a cliff with red soil and rock with layers of gypsum.
I love the curly formation in this section.
While we weren’t looking this road runner walked across our path.
Just a beautiful place that we’ll have to return to.
But…onward and upward…
