Less than a half hour drive south of Amarillo, Texas is the mysterious terra cotta badlands of Palo Duro Canyon. Palo Duro Canyon is the most spectacular and scenic landscape feature of Texas. Palo Duro Canyon, which is known as the Grand Canyon of Texas and is supposedly the second largest in the USA. This is based on its length (120 miles) rather than depth, as although very colorful, rugged and scenic, the ravine is never more than 800 feet deep, so quite shallow by Southwest canyon standards. Its a very popular place for tourists, campers, picnickers, photographers, backpackers, RV-ers, hikers, horse riders and cyclers.
