Pondering Palo Duro Canyon & Ambling Amarillo

This post is going to be 90% pictures and only 10% words. I know how wordy I can get lately, so I figured I’d clarify that right up front so you don’t click away.

We are currently in Amarillo, Texas and we are loving this area. The weather is a perfect mid 80’s during the daytime with the humidity being in the teens the majority of the time. It gets down into the 60’s at night and with the low humidity that feels downright cold! We chose this area because we wanted to visit Palo Duro Canyon State Park, which we did.  Twice!  We would have LOVED to have stayed inside the park, but there is no cell signal down in the canyon and that is where the campground is located. Greg has to work, so we need cell service to have internet. In light of this, we stayed in Fort Amarillo RV Park & Resort which is only about 15 minutes from the entrance to Palo Duro Canyon. I know, I know… I’m getting wordy.  Pictures, lots of pictures are coming!  These were all taken at Palo Duro Canyon, inside the park:

Here are some pictures of Fort Amarillo RV Park where we are staying:

I also went all by myself and visited the American Quarter Horse Hall of Fame and Museum.  Greg was working and Eiljah was uninterested.  I really enjoyed my visit.  Check it out:


As for ambling Amarillo, below are some pictures from around the town.  I like this area WAY more than I expected too.  This destination has been my favorite in our journeys thus far.

Sunday we are off again.  We are going to Albuquerque, New Mexico for one week and then we are heading to Arizona and to the Grand Canyon area where we will hang out for six whole weeks!  Woohoo!!!  The first 2 weeks we will be staying at a state park, then we will be in an RV Park close to the Grand Canyon for an entire month.  I am very excited to be able to spend some quantity as well as quality time in the Flagstaff area. In the meantime, be on the lookout for my next blog from New Mexico.

Happy Trails and Sunny Sails from….


P.S.  You should be able to comment now.  I was getting TONS of spam comments and changed my settings to make it so strict that I then got zero comments.  🙁  I contacted GoDaddy and was able to install some security and an anti-spam add-on which should alleviate the major spam comments I was getting.  All this to say…. comment!  Please!!!!

  1. Awesome blog. Pictures very comprehensive. Get a great feel for this part of Texas
    I know it takes a lot of time/effort to do this but it will also record your travels very well

  2. You have taken some beautiful shots! We have spent much time in Texas, mostly the hill country. Fredricksburg and the hill country are areas you should see on your way through next time, especially in the Spring when the blue bonnets are in bloom! Fredricksburg is a fun town, with a strong German flavor, settled by the Germans in the 1800s I think.

  3. Wow!! The pictures are fantastic!! I love that little store & what’s up with the cars?!! Haha. The horses are beautiful too!! Have fun & don’t get overheated!! 💜
