Palo Duro Canyon in Texas
Palo Duro, the second largest canyon in the great United States of America, is much smaller than the well-known Grand Canyon, but it is still impressive. At Palo Duro, you can stand on a huge white rock and let the wind blow off the canyon, into your hair. You can walk trails that take you to a small cabin, built into a hill. You can see deer, friendly turkeys, and perhaps sheep.

The wind blows up the canyon, and at night, you may think your little rim cabin is being inundated with rain, lightning, and thunder. Then, you peer outside and see that everything is dry, and there is no thunder or lightning. It is the wind, whipping up the canyon and into the crevices of the rock cabin.

This print is from an oil painting of a hillside in the canyon. Palo Duro is located about 20 miles south of Amarillo, Texas.
