We visited Palo Duro Canyon for the first time as tent campers back in 1992. Since it is on the way to Albuquerque from Oklahoma City, we decided to go see it and find out what we remembered.
I did not remember the steep and winding 10% grade down into the canyon from the front gate. But it was no problem for the Roadrunner.
We got into a good site at the Sagebrush Campground, one of three in the area for RVs.
We were glad to enjoy the beautiful canyon and the cloud formations as the sun set. And we were able to get out and hike some of the beautiful trails.
While at Palo Duro Canyon we also went by the Visitor Center and saw the displays including my favorite - the one of the Civilian Conservation Corps who built the park, the road, some of the buildings and trails.
The satellite dish worked fine but the internet and phone service were sketchy down in the canyon where we were parked. I had to run in to Canyon TX, 13 miles away, to use the wifi at McDonalds. But since they open at 5:00 AM, I got my work done and was back to the Roadrunner about 8:30.
I'm glad we got to see Palo Duro Canyon and do some hiking. Next time, we may stay at a different campground so we can 'stay connected' a little better.
Thanks for joining us today on the Roadrunner Chronicles!
