Palo Duro Canyon from Capitol Peak at Sunrise 1125-1

Capitol Peak Summit - Palo Duro Canyon

From the parking lot to the summit of Capitol Peak in Palo Duro Canyon, the distance is only .7 miles. However, the 350 vertical feet is a scramble up loose rock not for the faint of heart. This sunrise image from the summit shows the amazing colors that first light brings to the layers of rock, and made the scramble up in the dark worth the fear-factor. Photo © copyright by Rob Greebon.
