This vintage 1930s linen postcard of the Goodnight Trail at Palo Duro Canyon State Park is part of a large group of postcards purchased from a retiring postcard dealer on Facebook.

This new 15,103-acre canyon park, 12 miles east from Canyon, Texas or 23 miles south from Amarillo, includes scenic drives, bridle paths, hiking trails, picnic units, cabins, and restaurant – a recreational paradise!

Palo Duro Canyon is the second-largest canyon in the United States. It is roughly 120 miles long and has an average width of 6 miles, but reaches a width of 20 miles at places. Palo Duro Canyon has been called “The Grand Canyon of Texas” both for its size and for its geological features similar to those in the Grand Canyon.
