The Great Plains Adventure

Palo Duro Canyon State Park

If you want to visit Texas, go to the Great Plains! Especially the Palo Duro Canyon State Park. I know that when my friends and I went, we had a blast. They even have zip lines there! They also have hiking trails if you would like to burn of the pizza you had for lunch or if you would just like to enjoy the nature outside. There are different shaped canyons and different colored canyons. It is a very beautiful place to go with a family, friend, and even by yourself. The Palo Duro Canyon State Park is the second largest canyon in the United States, so you can imagine how big that is. It is about 60 miles long and has an average width of 6 miles, but also reaches a width of 20 miles at places. The depth is about 820 feet but in some places it can go up to 997 feet. If I could go on a trip anywhere, this is where I would go!
