Palo Duro Canyon, Amarillo, TX

View Our Journey on Meike Carter's travel map.

Our Journey officially began!!!
We took care of all our errands and were ready to explore new territory. We pulled out of our campsite at 4 AM, too excited to sleep and anxious to get to Amarillo. We wanted to eat that 72 oz. steak at Big Texan and park next door at the RV park, but...we discovered Palo Duro Canyon and totally forgot about the steak.
We drove Journey through the winding road and weren't aware that the road was getting steeper the further we went. The decline was pretty intense and ignited the air break threshold sensor. Which means the breaks had been depressed for too long.
We made it safely to the parking lot, breathing a sigh of relief.
Once we changed into shorts, we started our little hike, soaking in the breathtaking landscape.
We met a gentleman who has been visiting every State Park in the USA and suggested for us to check out Tom Miner Basin in Montana. Great, we love getting new tips and ideas. That destination is now on our bucket list.
Oasis RV park was our overnight pit stop and we were ready to relax after a busy day.
The GPS sent us down a dirt road which got worse the further down we drove. Dust and rocks kicked up as the coach bounced all the way to the entrance of the park. At the office they said not to follow the GPS, because they had to tow other RVs that got stuck the day before. Too late, we done did it !😉
We hooked up our filthy rig and wondered why Tony bothered washing her the day before.
The Jeep we tow looked even worse.
The next morning, as we were getting ready to pack up, we ran into our neighbor parked next to us. He seemed familiar. Sure enough it was the gentleman we talked to at Palo Duro SP.
Somehow travelers always end up meeting again.
This was our last stop in the lone star state and we were excited to explore New Mexico.
