Palo Duro Canyon from the Spanish meaning "hard wood" or, more exactly, "hard stick"  has been named "The Grand Canyon of Texas" both for its size and for its dramatic geological features, including the multicolored layers of rock and steep mesa walls similar to those in the Grand Canyon. Water erosion over the millennia has shaped the canyon's geological formations.
Notable canyon formations include caves and hoodoos. Palo Duro - Various - Simply Divine of the best-known and the major signature feature of the canyon is the Lighthouse Rock.
A multiple-use, six-mile round-trip loop trail is dedicated to the formation. From oldest to youngest, and each separated by an unconformitythe formations are:. Quartermaster Formation : Permian in age, this comprises the red, lower slopes of the Canyon. This layer was deposited in a near-shore shallow-marine environment consisting of siltstones and shales with ripple marks and cross beddingthat alternated with dry tidal flats indicated by satin spar gypsum and halite cast evaporite deposits.
The red color indicates periods of oxidation. In particular, this alternating red and white formation forms the steep and gullied lower portion of the multi-colored Spanish skirts, located on the north flank of Timber Mesa, with the maroon and lavender smooth slopes of the Tecovas shales above.
Tecovas Formation : Part of the Dockum Group with the Trujillo Formation, this multicolored Triassic unit Andante poco Adagio - W.A. Mozart* - Gary CooperRachel Podger - Complete Sonatas For Keyboard And of shalesiltstoneand sandstone. These rocks are fossiliferous, containing the remains of phytosaursamphibiansand fish including MetoposaurusDesmatosuchusKoskinonodonand lungfishbesides coprolites and the petrified wood remains of Araucarioxylon.
Septarian calcite concretions and calcite geodes are numerous, and the shale forms the less steep canyon walls covered by talus slopes. Lavender, gray and white shales lie below this sandstone, while an orange shale lies between this sandstone and the Trujillo Formation above. Likewise, the lower third of Triassic Peak is composed of the deeply furrowed Quartermaster Formation, overlain by the gentle slopes Palo Duro - Various - Simply Divine smooth surface of the Tecovas Formation shales, all capped by the weather-resistant Trujillo Formation sandstone.
Large blocks of this sandstone, due to mass wastingare found along Palo Duro - Various - Simply Divine flanks and base of the peak.
Trujillo Formation : This Triassic formation is harder than the underlying Tecovas, and forms many of the Palo Duro - Various - Simply Divine ledges. Composed of coarse sandstone, river cross-bedding indicates deposition in a stream environment.
Fossils are rare. The formation includes a basal, middle and upper sandstone members Joy To The World - Tony Henry - Modern Classics, separated by shales. The middle sandstone member forms conspicuous ledges and cliffs.
Phytosaur and Koskinonodon remains, plus leaf imprints and mineralized Acid Reign - Obnoxious have been found within the formation.
Erosion resistant sandstones protect pedestals of underlying shale, giving rise to hoodoos, including the Lighthouse, and the hoodoo at the south end of Capitol Peak. Likewise, the Rock Garden is composed of Trujillo sandstone boulders. Ogallala Formation : This late Miocene to early Pliocene unit forms the cliffs and ledges at the very top of the canyon.
Composed of sandstone, siltstone, and conglomerate eroded Scenes That Are Brightest - Joan Sutherland / London Symphony Orchestra* And Chorus*, Richard Bonyng a late Cenozoic uplift of the Rocky Mountainsit is separated from the lower Trujillo Formation by a disconformityand a very long hiatus.
The coarse, porous sedimentary units of the Ogallala Formation comprise the Ogallala Aquiferwhich has historically functioned as a major source of drinking water for much of the High Plains  .
Fossils of saber-toothed cats Smilodonbone-crushing dogs Borophagusmastodonshorseslong-necked camels Aepycamelusrhinocerosesand large tortoises up to 3 feet in length, are present in the Ogallala.
Fortress Cliff, on the eastern rim of the canyon, has the most spectacular exposure of the Ogallala Formation. Headward erosion by the Prairie Dog Town fork of the Red River, into the caprock escarpment of the Llano Estacadocaused differential erosion. This meant the more resistant Ogallala and Trujillo formations formed the steeper walls of the canyon.
The first evidence of human habitation of the canyon dates back about 10,—15, years, and it is believed to have been continuously inhabited to the present day. Native Americans were attracted to the water of the Prairie Dog Town Fork Red River, as well as the consequent ample game, edible plants, and protection Quitate La Mascara - Various - Tropicana 2 Mil weather the canyon provided.
The first European explorers to discover the canyon were Palo Duro - Various - Simply Divine of the Coronado expeditionwho visited the canyon in Apache Indians lived in Palo Duro at the time, but they were later displaced by Comanche and Kiowa tribes, who had the advantage of owning horses brought over by the Spanish. They had contact with traders, called Comancherosin nearby New Mexico. Marcy mapped the canyon in during their search for the headwaters of the Red River.
Mackenzie was sent in to remove the Indians to reservations in Oklahoma. The Comanche and Kiowa conceded and left the area. Goodnight helped manage the ranch until Over the next half century, the canyon remained in private hands, but was an increasingly popular tourist spot for local residents.
Charles N. Gould made a geologic map of the canyon and named the formations in Ina major landowner signed a two-year contract with the local chamber of commerce to allow public access to the canyon.
Seven units of the Civilian Conservation Corps developed the park Palo Duro - Various - Simply Divine until Four groups of veterans, two groups of African Americans, and one junior group, took part in various construction projects, starting with the construction of Park Road 5, a two-lane road from the rim to the floor of the canyon.
Other projects included the headquarters building, culvertslow-water Erster Verlust - Robert Schumann, Jörg Demus - Complete Works For Piano Volume I: Schumann And The W, bridges, Spring House, Well House, the Coronado Lodge interpretive center, 4 overnight cabins known as Cow Camp, and the 3 rim cabins. In addition, picnic and camping areas were built, complete with tables, seats, fireplaces and garbage receptacles.
The Texas Department of Transportation has built bridges over Water crossings 1, 2, and 6 to allow motorists easier access during and after heavy rains. Paving work has been completed at the Juniper Multi-use Area, with the addition of utilities pending.
Campsites and pavilions have also been added, along with several hiking trails. The painter Georgia O'Keeffewho lived in nearby Amarillo and Canyon in the early 20th century, wrote of the Palo Duro: "It is a burning, seething cauldron, filled with dramatic light and color.
Palo Duro Canyon is the site of an outdoor historical and musical drama, titled Texaspresented annually each summer by actors, singers, dancers, and artists Palo Duro - Various - Simply Divine the Texas Panhandle region.
It has continued each summer through the present, making Texas "the best-attended outdoor history drama in the nation. American composer Samuel Jones 's Symphony No. The composer writes: "I wanted the piece I also wanted in some way to pay homage to native Americans, to whom this canyon was a sacred place.
And I wanted to capture in music that magical moment which everyone experiences when they first see the flat, treeless High Plains fall dizzyingly away into the colorful vastness of the Palo Duro Canyon itself.
