Trust me. The road going in and coming out is very, very narrow and steep; 10% grade.

Beautiful area. However, when it rains hard it get's muddy and the mud has to be moved from the roads before travel is permitted. Also, flood gauge indicators are present and must be observed. Wash outs do occur. Follow State Park recommendations on travel.

Remember, it is the journey.
You won't have a problem with flooding over river crossings very often ... we only get around 20" of rain a year out here.

Growing up, my brother and I spent many days hiking the canyon with our dad. We found fossils of all kinds, as well as arrowheads and spear points of Alibates flint.



The outdoor musical drama, "Texas!", that is produced every summer, is definitely worth the trip to see. The stage is set against a backdrop of the canyon wall. Some of the special effects are absolutely amazing. Actors and singers come from around the country to perform in the production. If you get a chance to see it, DO. You won't regret it.

I have some photos that I took several years ago when we took my younger son and his wife to the canyon and rented one of the cabins on the canyon rim. The views from the cabin were amazing. I'll go back on my other 'puter and pull some of those photos off and put them up here.

The Palo Duro is a very special place to me. I explored fingers of the canyon with my dad and brother every summer. We camped many nights on the canyon floor, played in the creek, watched herds of aoudad sheep through binoculars, caught Texas horned lizards, and picked wild plums in the summer. The canyon is home to a host of wildlife, including wild turkey, bobcat, coyote, dove, quail, woodpeckers, white tail and mule deer, roadrunners, and a portion of the official herd of Texas longhorn cattle.

The Palo Duro is a true gem in the southwestern U.S.

So, "there!"

They're shelters over the picnic tables.

Mel, it looks magical. I look forward to a few pics!
Maybe a place to meet up one fine day (week).
Thanks!

Agreed! And the horned toad is or already has gone the way of the wolly mammoth that once walked the Palo Duro.... glad the wolly isn't there to crush me... but the rib shacks back then must have been awesome. My BIL has the Texas License Plate the horned toad on it. I miss those those little guys (horned toads). Lay em in your hand upside and rub their tummy - they went right to sleep. Never had one spit blood from his eyes at me... lol.

I believe RVM# order is the proper way. I don't play, so I can't win, but I have "The Kimono".

Dang, I missed the opportunity to do that with Barb. I bet it was good!

I'm hoping to return before March, but that isn't entirely in my control…will find out next week.

I was talking today to someone and I think if I won, whoever showed up at GC 1.2, I'd pull an Oprah on them - YOU get a MILLION and YOU get a MILLION and YOU….

Geeeeeeezzzz...miss a day and I'm 20 pages behind...

Can't make the GC@CL this year (w**k, darnit) but am going to Decatur in June for the Fleetwood gathering.

Am very serious about retiring in a few months, assuming we can sell the house...not sure we can afford to keep living here on SS alone and there ain't that much in the 401K...

When I graduated college I thought it would be fun to travel around the country in an old van...heh, only took 40+ years...

Dave
