The Lighthouse

Shaped by the hand of time,
The Lighthouse stands.
The enduring symbol of the Palo Duro,
The Lighthouse stands.
Through the ravages of wind and rain,
The Lighthouse stands.
In spite of the adoration of man,
The Lighthouse stands.
May we each stand as
The Lighthouse stands.
"Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand." __ Ephesians 6:13

Thanks, Incognito. The Lighthouse is about 15 miles from my house in Palo Duro Canyon State Park. It's a pretty tough hike to get there though!

It's not that bad of a hike. Especially when you go at midnight...then it's just cool. You don't even realize how far you've walked.

Palo Duro canyon is so beautiful. No wonder Georgia O'Keeffe went in an entirely new direction after her stint in Canyon, Texas.
