2. Palo Duro Canyon
Located near Amarillo in the Panhandle, there is a reason this second-largest canyon in the United States was one of Georgia O’Keefe’s favorite choices for a painting. She even wrote one time that, “[The canyon] is a burning, seething cauldron filled with dramatic light and color.” The beauty of the canyons also inspired a symphony. They serve as the backdrop to the famous outdoor musical, “Texas” each summer, which attracts thousands of visitors from all over the world. Definitely add this to your list of places to visit in Texas if you haven’t already done so.
