Palo Duro Canyon Panorama November 1

Palo Duro Canyon

From the rim of Palo Duro Canyon, this panorama looks over the red and orange rock of the distant cliffs and across the valley below. Autumn afternoon sun was filtered by high clouds, allowing the colors of the rock and mesas to appear vibrant. No trails lead to this point above the canyon, and the trek to reach this point is a bit of a grunt over loose rock, scrub brush, and cacti, but the view is amazing. Photo © copyright by Rob Greebon.
