I am back in Texas at Palo Duro Canyon State Park. Opted to do the lighthouse trail again with a little change to my normal hiking. I was with a group of 6 people 3 of which had not done much of any hiking before. The other thing that was out of the normal hike for me was that I was getting Married at the lighthouse. It was not my idea to get married while on a hike but I jumped at the idea when it was suggested. On this hike with me was Virginia (bride), my sister and the minister with her husband and daughter. We wore AZ Hiking Shack matching Tee shirts. This was proof that weddings can be inexpensive and not stressful.

The Lighthouse trail is an easy 3 mile one way hike along a scenic easy to follow trail. The last quarter mile has a 200 to 300 foot steep climb but quite doable by any experience level. The weather for this hike was overcast so it made the hike much more pleasant although the pictures didn't show the colors of the canyon as well. After the wedding ceremony on the return trip the highlight of the hike back was watching a dung beetle rolling it's catch up an incline only to have it roll down and it would chase it and start all over. Did this multiple times. I would of helped it but it was dung after all.

The park was open by reservation only but suppose to be back to normal soon. Check the Palo Duro Canyon website for the latest info.
