Llano Slot Canyons - the Upper Slot 3 - Palo Duro
Llano Slot Canyons - Palo Duro Canyon
Formed from the rare but repeating rainfalls in the Palo Duro Canyon area, these Llano Estacado slot canyons present a beautiful experience for those fortunate enough to explore them. I was gifted the opportunity by two friends who knew the area well. In this particular slot - known locally as the Upper Central Utah Slot Canyon - the morning sunlight of a cool November day turns the sandstone shades of orange and pink and purple. This area is virtually untouched by humans, and there are no signs of human interference in this pristine portion of the Texas panhandle. Photo © copyright by Rob Greebon.
