A Beautiful Day in Canyon, Texas

Just a few miles south of Amarillo, Canyon has been my home for three years. It’s a terrific community with a great school system, a fantastic university (my employer), and some hometown charm.

What’s even better is that we have attractions you just won’t find anywhere else in Texas. Palo Duro Canyon (along with the musical drama “Texas“), the Panhandle-Plains Historical Museum, and a host of events at West Texas A&M University are among them. So if you’re traveling through Amarillo or coming north from Lubbock, you might as well get on (or off) I-27 and spend a little bit of time exploring what Canyon has to offer.

These photos were made on a sunny day back in March. They’re the very first pictures I took with my new camera. For my “test run,” I kept the camera’s functions on automatic, with the exception of using a manual focus. These photos were taken on and near Canyon’s downtown square. The clock tower and buffalo fountain are on WTAMU’s campus.
