If you've followed me for long, you'll know I'm on a cross-country trek to (and along) the West coast. Since my guest couldn't be here today, I thought I'd share some of my vacation memories (so far) with you.....
Our journey began on Thursday, June 9th and started in Gordonville, TX at Cedar Mills Resort on Lake Texoma. Not a lot to do there, the wind blew all the time. Not a gentle breeze, but up to 25 mph with gusts even higher. However, we did see some beautiful sunrises. It was awesome to see the sun rising to the east while the moon still shone bright over the harbor.
Next stop was Amarillo, & Canyon, TX and Palo Duro Canyon!
Known as Texas' "best kept secret" Palo Duro Canyon is amazing. You're driving along the highway with nothing but farm land and wheat fields when all of a sudden you come upon a huge hole in the ground! Here are a few pics, but I can promise these don't do the beauty of this park justice.,,,There are numerous hiking trails, the views are spectacular, colors magnificent and TEXAS the outdoor musical drama breathtaking.
We did some hiking in the morning then drove into Amarillo to eat at the Big Texan Steak Ranch...home of the 72 oz steak! I'd heard a lot about this restaurant so we just had to eat there. The food was delicious and plentiful. There are a lot of neat things in this restaurant, some creepy ones too...but all in all, worth the trip.
Eating at this historic restaurant was great but my favorite part of visiting Amarillo was the American Quarter Horse (AQHA) Hall of Fame and Museum!
This is a treat any horse lover would enjoy.
On Monday the 12th we left TX and visited Santa Fe / Pecos New Mexico. I'll be sharing photos from there later so be sure and drop by weekly for Tuesday Treasures, Thursday Thoughts and Saturday Spotlight!
And don't forget the Multi-Author Rafflecopter Giveaway of a Kindle Fire which ends in less than 2 weeks!
Until next time, take care and God Bless.
