I was told by a good friend that Palo Duro is gods trick on Texas,a large deep hole in the ground and if you didn't pay attention to your surroundings you'd think you fell into the Grand Canyon.If you are in West Texas there is no way you can't find palo duro state park if you can find Canyon texas. go south from Amarillo on 27 and get off onto 217 in canyon, follow that, go into the state park and go past 3 water crossings, park and enjoy !!
