Palo Duro Canyon State Park, Canyon, Texas, USA
Palo Duro Canyon is an incredible canyon system of the Caprock Escarpment located in the Texas Panhandle near the cities of Amarillo and Canyon.
As the second-largest canyon in the United States, it is roughly 120 mi long and has an average width of 6 mi , but reaches a width of 20 mi at places. Its depth is around 820 ft, but in some locations, it can increase up to 1,000 ft (300 m). Palo Duro Canyon has been named “The Grand Canyon of Texas” both for its size and for its dramatic geological features, including the multicolored layers of rock and steep mesa walls similar to those in the Grand Canyon.
