CAMPING & HIKING IN THE TEXAS GRAND CANYON (Palo Duro Canyon State Park) | Texas Road Trip PART 2!

CAMPING & HIKING IN THE TEXAS GRAND CANYON (Palo Duro Canyon State Park) | Texas Road Trip PART 2!

Palo Duro Canyon State Park is one of the most underrated destinations I’ve EVER been to! It’s the second-largest canyon in the United States and is a quick 45-minute drive from Amarillo. There’s some awesome RV camping in Palo Duro (we stayed at Juniper campground), the hikes are absolutely STUNNING, and the mountain biking trails are epic.

We got up at sunrise and hiked the 5.8-mile Lighthouse Trail ( to the iconic 300-foot Lighthouse Rock. Palo Duro is truly the hidden gem of Texas and I couldn’t recommend it enough!

Curious what else we’ve been up to in Texas? Check out PART 1 of our Texas road trip!

My name is Crosby and I am a freelancer and blogger currently working remotely and traveling the USA in a travel trailer with my boyfriend, Dylan! After a few corporate jobs throughout college, I quickly realized that the 9-5 lifestyle wasn’t for me. So I built up my freelance business, saved a bunch of money, and went on a 2-month Colorado road trip where I lived in my car while traveling and working remotely. Now, I’m traveling full-time in a travel trailer and sharing everything I learn on YouTube!

    So My wonderful wife and I are about an hour north of Dallas. I was researching Palo Duro and saw your video! Subscribed! We are looking to book in April. If you were looking to book again and could pick any specific site or loop (Mesquite, Sagebrush, Hackberry, or Juniper seem to be only RV loops) to book in PD, which would you choose and why? Any PD advice? We have a 30′ KZ connect 241RLK TT.

    07:32 I don’t see the sign? "If you see my trailer rocking, don’t come a knocking". Cheezzze need to get some z’s. Some say there’s a lot of cool graffiti at the very top of the lighthouse rock.

    Very cool video guys, I enjoy watching your videos and getting ideas of where to go, and what to do when I get my travel trailer. Also it’s cool to watch you guys having a good time traveling, getting to know our great nation! 👊🏻🇺🇸

  4. Martha N on February 2, 2023 at 2:49 pm

    What do you guys do for income?

  5. Thomas R. Burian on February 2, 2023 at 2:56 pm

    You guys are cute, I love the loving vibe you give.

  6. Adventures with Bill & Livvi on February 2, 2023 at 2:57 pm

    May I offer a slight suggestion?

    Get another hose for the black water flushing. I’ve watched some serious 🤢 stuff being connected to those taps that you do not want anything that goes to fresh water to get near. I got an orange one and just keep it dedicated for that purpose.

    Great to see guys out and about enjoying the 17MKE. Ours is sitting under a cover (not a carport type but actual fabric one) waiting till July for our next adventure.

    Stay safe!

    What’s your fans only site? 😬

  10. Nerdy Native on February 2, 2023 at 3:07 pm

    Now that you’ve got the Light House trail out of the way, there are so many other great hikes in the canyon on your next trip.

    Gas was $2.74. Was this made a thousand years ago? 😃 😀 😄

  12. Doug Wheeler on February 2, 2023 at 3:18 pm

    We did a cross country trip a couple years ago and came across this park by accident. It a treasure.

  14. Barbara Batten on February 2, 2023 at 3:19 pm

    Awesome video and good laugh at the beginning with the forgetting of clothes. Dylan is veryyyy understanding it seems. Ha..

  15. Joe L on February 2, 2023 at 3:21 pm

    Cool, hoping to go in April.

  16. Edgar Allan Ramirez on February 2, 2023 at 3:23 pm

    Can you guys post links to your footage gear in your future video descriptions? Camera, drone?

  19. Nevin Nicole on February 2, 2023 at 3:30 pm

    Love this! His drone probably didn’t work bc I’m almost sure you need a permit to fly one in any Texas park

  20. Sarah Jennings on February 2, 2023 at 3:32 pm

    You guys are literally living my dream life! I love watching your videos!

  21. Adam Merino on February 2, 2023 at 3:34 pm

    Is your jeep grand Cherokee a v6 or v8?

  22. Sukie Russo on February 2, 2023 at 3:37 pm

    My father-in-law had a saying, “if you watch your pennies, the dollars will take care of themselves!” I’m proud of you Dylan.

  23. Sev Aguillon on February 2, 2023 at 3:40 pm
