    Once upon a time, a shower of shiny gold coins fell from the sky over Palo Duro Canyon State Park south of Amarillo. No, really. This isn’t a fairy tale. That actually happened one Saturday in the late spring of , a decade and a half after the scenic and history-rich Panhandle park opened to .   Palo Duro Canyon was a place just a few hours of our home in the Lubbock area that we could go camping and experience the "mountains". Of course it is a canyon, but looking up from the bottom you were surrounded by hills and mountains which was a rare experience if you lived on farmland in the west Texas panhandle.4/5(K).

    In , Charles Goodnight, famous for spearheading the Texas –Wyoming cattle drives, drove a herd of cattle into Palo Duro Canyon and began the first commercial ranch in the Texas Panhandle – the JA Ranch. Over the next fifty years, the canyon remained the private property of cattlemen, but over the years, it began to be an increasingly popular spot for tourists and local residents. The Dalhart Basin is a small intra-continental basin located in the northwestorn corner of the Texas Panhandle. It occupies most of Dallam and Hartley Counties and extends south into Oldham County and north into Cimarron County, Oklahoma. The stratigraphic sequence consists of a variety of lithic types.

    As you drive toward Palo Duro Canyon from Amarillo, it suddenly emerges from the heart of the Texas Panhandle. First as a small gap, then a gaping, deep schism in the ground with deep red, brown.

A structural basin is a large-scale structural formation of rock strata formed by tectonic warping of previously flat-lying strata.

Structural basins are geological depressions, and are the inverse of elongated structural basins are also known as ural basins may also be sedimentary basins, which are aggregations of sediment that filled up a depression or accumulated.

The Spanish name Palo Duro means "hardwood" and refers to the hardwood shrubs and trees found in the canyon. Palo Duro Canyon was carved into the eastern Caprock escarpment of the High Plains during the past ninety million years by the headwaters of.

Of the canyons that break the eastern edge of the Staked Plains, Palo Duro is by far the most spectacular. As one approaches the edge, the earth opens up into a vast gash, a geological and ecological wonder. And whether you come to Palo Duro as a novice or veteran canyoneer, the thrill and the mystery are always intense.
