Palo Duro Canyon Park

Friday, we visited Palo Duro Canyon Park.  It is the "Grand Canyon of Texas".

The pictures don't show the beauty of the canyon.

We walked around one of the campgrounds.  We had to watch for the cacti because they were all over.  Scout decided it was too hot, so we had to return to the car.  It wasn't hot, but Scout prefers temperatures in the 40's or 50's.

We are at our new home near Dallas.  The trip here was easy.  We met some people who were traveling on Wednesday in the high winds like we did and they said they had awning problems.  They said they saw three other people who had awning issues.  It was nice to talk to other travelers who experienced the same issues as us.

There is a greyhound who lives here.  She is 12.  Her name is Miss Woe.  Her folks said that she lived on the streets for six years and they adopted her two years ago after their other grey died of cancer.  She is small.  We look like giants next to her.  It sounds like she mainly stays inside.  Scout says that sounds get to her.

The Greyhound Who Wonders Who Thinks Clear Poo Bags Is A Good Idea 


  1. I am glad you have a grassy area to watch things and take a snooze. Makes up for not so great dog walk areas.

  2. What beautiful scenery, Mum would love to go to the Grand Canyon some day.
    Miss Woe sounds adorable, do you think her parents would let you get a picture of her for us to see?

    1. I am not sure. I thought about asking, but I haven't yet. She is white with brindle, like Joey.

  3. So you have a little yard? That would be wonderful! Hope we get to see some pictures of Miss Woe. I have never heard of Palo Duro Canyon Park. Just when I think I should be old enough to have heard of everything, I find out I'm wrong. It looks beautiful. Looking forward to stories of your new home.

  4. I'm still wondering why clear?! Must have been cheap I guess but that's pretty odd! Glad at least you have some grassy areas :) Happy Monday!

  5. Palo Duro Canyon is great for seeing wild turkeys and deer in your campsite. Glad you liked it.

    The clear bags are free,right.? The price gave you what was cheapest.

  6. Boy - sure looks hot and dry.
    I think Miss Mandy would be with Scout in regard to the heat. When we go camping in the heat she always wants to go lay inside the air conditioned camper. Oh poor Miss Woe, doing only for herself all that time. So glad she has a wonderful family to look out for her, especially since she is a senior Miss now!

  7. Hi there! My name is Mayzie and our furend Miss Lori from What Remains Now told me abouts you all. See, we just went on an adventure to Palo Duro Canyon, too! Isn't that funny? But we just have a tiny little camper called a Shall-Ay and we only gets to go on adventures every once in awhile. But my mom and dad have big dreams about doing it year-round someday. It's awfully nice to meet you and if you wanna see our pictures of Palo Duro, you can pop on over to http://mayziesdogblog.com/2013/05/07/shall-ay-adventure-palo-duro-canyon/.

    I'm sure looking forward to following your bloggie and getting to know you better!

    Wiggles & Wags,

  8. It's so cool that you have a little yard and a Greyhound neighbor! I hope you get to meet her soon!
