Capitol Peak October Sunrise Panorama 1

Capitol Peak - Palo Duro Canyon

From a precariouis ledge to the west of the iconic Capitol Peak, this panorama shows off the colors of sunrise in Palo Duro Canyon. Even a small boquet of broom weed, the golden flowers in the foreground, add a splash of yellow to the orange and red landscape. The scramble up the scree-filled slope to this location was not fun nor easy - and I probably won’t do it again. But the view was incredible. Photo © copyright by Rob Greebon.
