Capitol Peak before Sunrise 107-1

Capitol Peak - Palo Duro Canyon

Capitol Peak stand high above the valley of Palo Duro Canyon on a beautiful October morning. The scramble up to this perch was not one of my better decsions, and I probably would not attempt this again. However, the views were remarkable, and I’ve never seen another image of this Texas panhandle icon from this angle. The soft light of sunrise helped the rocks of the ridge glow in hues of oranges and reds and made the experience even better. It was a morning I will not soon forget! Photo © copyright by Rob Greebon.
