Capitol Peak Sunset, Palo Duro Canyon 725-1

Capital Peak, Palo Duro Canyon

The sky turned to fire for a few brief moments over Palo Duro Canyon’s iconic Capitol Peak. Taken just off the Lighthouse Trail, this photograph shows the red-rocked summit with its adjacent hoodoo on the left as the sun slipped below the horizon and lit up the July evening. From my perspective, there were few places I’d rather be. And on this unusually cool summer evening, I did not see another person. Photo © copyright by Rob Greebon.
