    Like other commenters, I had no idea it was so close to Amarillo. Whenever I saw it in Texas picture books, I assumed it was in Big Bend country. I'll have to check it out next time I'm headed that way.

    •  Yes, Big Bend National Park has 3 grand canyons: (1+ / 0-)

      Santa Elena, Mariscal, and Boquillas.  Those canyons aren't very long or wide, but they have sheer vertical drops of close to 1200 feet in some places.

    •  You probably mistakenly thought (0+ / 0-)

      that "West Texas" was the westernmost part of the state, and the "panhandle" was the geographic panhandle of the state.

      Both of which are wrong. :)
