Oct 5, 2010 Beauty all around us!

JoAnne Morgan


We woke to the coyotes howling – they sounded like they were right next to us. It’s wonderful how the sound travels and bounces back in the canyon!

It was a clear brisk morning, so we took a hike which turned into a “marathon of hikes!” The Sunflower trail was beautiful! Walking through the mesquite, juniper and cottonwood trees along the red, red canyon walls was just incredible!

We are going to bed early tonight as we are leaving this beautiful canyon tomorrow.

Summary:Palo Duro Canyon State Park
After seeing all of the other campgrounds, we thought the Mesquite Campground was the nicest. Large spaces in-between campers, & well maintained. Each site had water and electric and also shower facilities, plus covered tables and large trash containers.

All in all – it’s an interesting place for adults and children. From the scenery to the wildlife, and the informed, helpful rangers, and camp hosts. It actually felt more like a National Park than a State Park. See Photos Here
