Driving from Abilene to Canyon, Texas is fairly flat and uninteresting until you get near to Canyon. When you make the turn east and are about a mile from the entrance, it’s like the earth fell out from under you. To your right there are large gashes in what must have once been just flat earth, except it has taken centuries. Palo Duro Canyon State Park is described as “Texas’ best kept secret.” Geologically spectacular with layer upon layer of colors. Ms. Richardson, my favorite teacher at Alpha Academy (my high school) would have been in her element here. It is also the second largest canyon in the United States.
