As an avid hiking family, we have always wanted to travel out to Amarillo and visit Palo Duro Canyon State Park. As the second largest canyon in the country, it was a must-see on our bucket list. Since we live in Denton, Texas we knew that we would have to make travel arrangements, as we were planning on staying in the local area for several days. After work on a Friday, we headed out on the 5-hour drive and looked forward to the adventure that awaited the next day! Now, let’s talk about the Canyon!
Most people have heard of the Grand Canyon. However, the second largest canyon in the United States lies in the heart of the Texas Panhandle. It's called The Palo Duro Canyon. It's just five hours from our home in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex.
