TPPA Social: Palo Duro Canyon and the Texas Outdoor Musical!
When: June 13
Where: Palo Duro Canyon near Canyon, Texas
TPPA hits the road for a trip to Palo Duro Canyon. Bring a friend or the entire family!
Know as, “The Grand Canyon of Texas”, Palo Duro is the second largest canyon in the country. Experience the canyon’s rugged beauty and enjoy its colorful history.
Things to Do
Explore the canyon by foot, mountain bike, horse or car. The park has more than 30 miles of hiking, biking and equestrian trails. Camp, geocache, study nature or bird watch.
Explore the area on your own way. While we are not organizing activities on an “official” level, we do know that there will be folks camping on Saturday and Sunday Night, some plan to do some night sky photography, and some will get up early to capture a sunrise over the canyon. Still, others will do some serious hiking while some will enjoy a leisurely drive through the park.
Choose from campsites with water and electricity, tent sites, equestrian sites, or backpack camping areas. Stay in one of three cabins on the canyon’s rim or four Cow Camp cabins on the canyon floor. You can also stay in a hotel in nearby Canyon or Amarillo.
New to Palo Duro Canyon: Glamping (luxury camping)! Each glamping site is fully furnished with air conditioning, luxury rustic furnishings, refrigerators, microwaves, coffee makers, games, bicycles, gas grills and gas fire pits, covered porches with rockers, porch swings, and much more. More information on glamping at Palo Duro Canyon.
Then, cap off the night with a chuck wagon dinner and a ticket to the musical, Texas.
A FAMILY-FRIENDLY SHOW set against an authentic tapestry of history, the show’s fictional characters bring to life the stories, struggles and triumphs of the settlers of the Texas Panhandle in the 1800’s. Song and dance abound – and a generous helping of good ol’ Texas humor too – with spellbinding lighting, special effects and fireworks.
Our group will also enjoy a backstage tour before the show.
