Running in Palo Duro Canyon State Park
This week I went on a vacation to Palo Duro Canyon State Park, Texas, about a day's drive from home. It's the second largest U.S. canyon. On Tuesday, I ran up the trail to see Lighthouse rock, which you can see in the distance in the center of the top photo. Last time, my husband and I ran and biked all of the way to the rock, but this time we didn't have the time.
I got in some great hill running on this trip. My husband rode his bike and made a few jokes to the hikers we saw on the trail about keeping up with me or finally passing me. We stayed in our RV and had a campfire that night.
