Cactus Prickly Pear Palo Duro Canyon

Palo Duro Canyon

We did the Lighthouse Trail hike at Palo Duro Canyon and it was legit!

It started out a little cloudy but cleared up throughout our hike! Thanks to the morning rain though, we got to see a great rainbow!



The hike is 6 miles round-trip so we started at 7 am (when the park opens) so that it would be as cool as possible.


We each took a camel back and hats to keep us cool and hydrated and we were finished in a couple of hours.


Climb all the way to the base of the lighthouse for the best views! See the little people in the picture above!?


Loving the prickly pear colors and my cute parental units!


Views from the base of the Lighthouse! Hideous!




We had a great time and I would absolutely do this hike again!

And bonus….this picture is my new water color inspiration!


Happy Hiking!
