Palo Duro Trip---Part 4

Here's a view from the rim of the canyon. When you drive up to the park, you're riding along in this pretty flat terrain, and then the land just drops down and you see this beautiful striped land. The horseback guide told us it's not usually this green this time of year.

Palo Duro is the second largest canyon in the country, formed in the same way the Grand Canyon was---a river. This river is (wait for this very long name) Prairie Dog Town Fork of the Red River.
This is a good shot of the visitor center to the right. This was about 8:30 at night, so they were already closed.

The next morning we went for our horseback ride. B took this picture of me.

Here's the rest of the group. We're all ready with our jeans! We were fortiunate that it was a cloudy morning with fairly cool temps.

Here's the guy who owns the business, and he gave us our initial instructions. The main thing was to Stay on the Horse. They would take care of us if we were up on the horse!
