That would be great, Tim! Maybe we could bring Bow up and join you for a mini-mini.

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!"
I lived in Lubbock in 1959-1960. Palo Duro Canyon was the first place my Dad took my younger brother and myself on a road trip. It holds a special place in my heart as well.

Better not make plans till you meet me at GC 1.2. I'm kind of shy, quiet and introverted.

Of course we could meet up and caravan to the GCII!

Had a great conversation with a mutant friend's better half (Much Better Half BTW) and we think maybe there should be two GCs every year. The first middle of winter someplace warm for the cold country people to get away to and the other in mid summer for our family bearing years mutants. I like the idea of Bryce Canyon as a GC location.

Di we are looking at the trip out to Bryce Canyon, a stop at Palo Duro Canyon in Tx, a stop in Albuquerque, then to Grand Canyon then to Bryce. I think you said y'all had done that area so suggestions on what to see, where to stay?

Will do.... Gotta get that notebook out.... Ours were all separate trips....
But i will say, we stayed up on the grand canyon rv park..... Rather than drive up each day..... There were elk roaming the sites.... Good park to stay in... But we were not there during out of school times, so that might be harder to get reservations..... That would be your first consideration.... When you can get in....... Plan around when you can get in........
