Texas State Parks | Copper Breaks | Drive By - Part 1
Copper Breaks is nestled between Quanah and Crowell Texas on highway 6. The park offers many outdoor activities including breath taking views as well as sunsets, moderate hiking trails, camp sites and fishing. But most importantly, it offers you the opportunity to create lasting memories with family and friends. So, whether you are a set in the chair and read a book type, an explorer that wonders what is just around the bend, a rippin’ lips die hard fisherman, a photographer or a stargazer, Copper Breaks seems to have you covered. Copper Breaks State Park is part of the International Dark Sky Parks in the United States. Read more about this at According to Wikipedia, Copper Breaks State park hosts stargazing events monthly between April and October, I didn't see anything about this on the official state park web site though. Copper Breaks also includes a portion of the official state Texas Longhorn herds. Not sure what makes them official but that's what they say :-?
I know this first part was rather long, I am just trying to give people the opportunity to see the park and what it offers them, before they drive 50+ plus miles to visit this park. It is not the prettiest park you’ll ever see, but everyone has their own opinion of what is beautiful and what they could live without. It is worth a look if you are even a little close though.
Originally Copper Breaks was part of the land held by the Comanche and Kiowa Native American Indians. The land was purchased from a private land owner in 1970 and opened as a state park in 1974.

Palo Duro Canyon State Park: camp, hike, bike, explore
Welcome to the Grand Canyon of Texas. Palo Duro Canyon is approximately 120 miles long and 600 to 800 feed deep. It is the second largest canyon in the United States. You will enjoy camping, hiking, biking, and horseback riding in the area. Palo Duro is Spanish for hard wood in reference to the juniper trees common throughout the canyon.
At the end of the video, I read a poem about the canyon by David Knape. See:
PALO DURO CANYON
of red rock and
scrub cedars wedged into rock
cottonwoods fluttering along
the prairie dog branch
Spanish skirts flared to the sun
the moon shining softly
on the lighthouse
trails leading into
caves and crevices keeping
the ancient beat of drums
chants coming from the stone
the ghost of Quanah
rattlesnake rattles in
crossing the canyon
sweeping round the rim
whistling through the narrows
