Nope! Curb feelers would not have helped. Needed some front feelers or the new newfangled radar. Of course one could surmise that the driver was thinking, maybe we can make an amphibious RV (Nope: already done.)

But when that rain does come - Palo Duro gets wet and muddy. We were then when a little of that rain fell.

Yessirree, Captain, it would be a beautiful place to meet up.

Here are some pics (all taken by me) from a few years back when we took my son & dil to the Palo Duro. Spent 3 glorious days there.

First photo: Son Andrew and dil Brittany at an overlook.
Second photo: Kate, Andrew and Brittany
Third photo: View from one of the patios outside our cabin on the canyon rim
Fourth photo: View from our cabin at a different time of day

Will be there again in April with my mom and sister for a mother-daughter campout to celebrate mom's 87th BD. Talk about a mutant! My mom is AMAZING! Will be sure and post pics from that outing!

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.
