Palo Duro Canyon - Texas 207

After viewing the Charles Goodnight House in Goodnight, TX we went back to Claude, TX and took Texas 207 down into and across Palo Duro Canyon. Most people know of the canyon from the state park end, the west end of the canyon. Texas 207 crosses the canyon probably 20 miles from the state park.

The scenery is spectacular. The colors of the red rock and the green foliage really was a beautiful contrast.

We made this drive on Saturday and you can see the clouds coming in for an evening rain storm. The road crosses the Prairie Dog Town Fork of the Red River. By the indications of the bridge, there was a large amount of water in it at one time. On this day, barely a puddle left.

This drive is one that you should put on your to-do list if in the area. We enjoyed it, and think you will also.
