Palo Duro Canyon State Park

288/366: Palo Duro Canyon State Park

On our road trip out to Colorado we made a stop by Palo Duro Canyon State Park in Texas which is the second largest canyon in the United States. I was stunned by the sure size and beauty.  We did a small hike down one level of the canyon in order to get a better view of the outlying area and that is where I captured this shot.

The Canyon is 120 miles long, as much as 20 miles wide, and has a maximum depth of more than 800 feet. Its elevation at the rim is 3,500 feet above sea level.
