Monty, Bar Z's owner, parked us next to his Quonset hut style winery in a spot that offered outstanding views of the upper reach of Palo Duro Canyon. We even had an electric hookup for our coach!

Hiking in Palo Duro Canyon State Park

Because Bar Z offered us the option to stay an extra night, we had the opportunity to visit and hike in Palo Duro SP. This also gave us enough time to sample a couple of craft beers at the Long Wooden Spoon Brewery in Amarillo.

Diana went for a run & Rob't hiked Rock Garden (a new trail since our last visit) in Palo Duro. Quite pleasant. Along the way, we both saw this unique lizard. Not sure what kind.
