Palo Duro Canyon Sun Dog

Palo Duro Canyon

As I walked towards the Lighthouse in Palo Duro Canyon, I could see the colors of a Sun Dog (similar to a rainbow but caused by ice crystals in the atmosphere). After arriving to take in the grand scene, I took advantage of the shimmering prism that nearly surrounded the sun as it caught the colors in the clouds. This was a rare and special treat, especially at this destination. After the sun dropped behind the Texas landscape, this sky would light up in deep reds and oranges, creating one of the most amazing sunsets I've experienced in a long time.
