The Lighthouse in Evening - Palo Duro 1124-1

The Lighthouse - Palo Duro Canyon

The iconic Lighthouse of Palo Duro Canyon rises into the cool November evening air. The trail maps say the distance from the parking lot is about 5.7 miles round trip, but for this trek I actually covered about 7.5 miles with the extra exploring. The views in this area of Palo Duro are amazing, and the evening light adds color to the layers and colors of the ancient rock. Photo © copyright by Rob Greebon.
