Step into The Real Texas – Details

(1 1/2 hours) Palo Duro Canyon Drive: North America’s Second Largest Canyon is the beautiful and breathtaking Palo Duro Canyon. The Grand Canyon may be larger, but this canyon can definitely stand on its own! Drive into a beautiful land where Spanish Explorers searched for the Seven Cities of Gold, Apache and Comanche Indians made their homes, and the U.S. eventually claimed as it’s own. Palo Duro Canyon is history and Eco-Tourism at its finest!
