ok

Palo Duro is ok if you have never seen any thing at all in your life. But you will have to see . Some of us just cant see the forest for the woods . That could be me. Let us know what you think after a day there. Be sure and take a ride on the brass monkey train. I will try to be in Amarillo next week and I will try to make it to Lubbock is there any thing you need from here.

Palo Duro Canyon:

Hope you have better luck at seeing than I did. Once I got there, there was just this big crevice in the earth... if that Palo Duro thing was down there at the bottom, I couldn't see it on account of it was too far down.

Same with the forests I've tried to see. Once I get there, can't see it for all the trees in the way.

I had a pair of those goggles once with pres lenses. Sure could see good but they did not fit the enduro/hs "look" very well. Maybe it would have been better with a goatee snd stash.

We went for a morning ride to take advantage of lower temps. We got p-o-u-r-e-d on. The dog didn't like it too much but all in all it was a pretty decent ride.
