Something for your Lazy Sunday…

Palo Duro Canyon - Texas Panhandle

During my visit to the beautiful Palo Duro Canyon, I could not get the Mommas and the Pappas song out of my mind. I knew I would share these pics with you beloved blog-buds.

Palo Duro Canyon is located in Canyon Texas a half hour south of Amarillo.  From all the flat land around there, you would never guess that such a beautiful and expansive canyon existed in the region.

When we were in Santa Fe a few years back, I learned artist Georgia O’Keeffe was a school teacher in Canyon and Amarillo when she was a young woman fresh out of college. She taught art classes in the school systems. She had several suitors during her years in Texas, but I think her first love was Palo Duro Canyon.  This place inspired her to paint her rugged landscapes of the Southwest, and probably had a lot to do with her eventual move to the Santa Fe, Ghost Ranch, and Abiquiu New Mexico.

I think there’s a raunchy pun in there somewhere.

The canyon looks lovely, but a little warm.

Depending on how long she was gone, she may have other things in mind.

Just sayin’.

For awhile there it seemed like everybody was blogging. Kind of like when we were all Kung Fu fighting.
