It was an easy 98 mile drive from Palo Duro Canyon State Park to Caprock Canyons State Park about three miles North of Quitaque (pronounced Kitty Quay), TX. The campsite is very large with 50 amps and water. A dump is located on the way out. We have very limited Verizon, but hopefully I will be able to get these entries posted, and there is a clear shot to the satellite for DirecTV.
You can probably guess what we did Saturday & Sunday – you guessed it – football. Sadly our Gators lost their third straight. Hopefully they get it turned around soon! Monday we walked the Canyon Rim Trail which is a little over three miles round trip along the rim of the canyons. Unfortunately, most of the trail is away from the rim through scrub with nothing but mesquite and prickly pear for a view. We did get some needed exercise though. We then drove the short scenic drive through the bottom of the canyon. These red-walled canyons are pretty and make you think you are back in Utah again.
Tomorrow, we head for the Great Plains State Park, close to where I was born in Snyder, OK.
