Mtnester,

If you have some time check out Palo Duro Canyon State Park. It is just outside Amarillo.

"The Canyon is 120 miles long, as much as 20 miles wide, and has a maximum depth of more than 800 feet. Its elevation at the rim is 3,500 feet above sea level. It is often claimed that Palo Duro Canyon is the second largest canyon in the United States. The largest, the Grand Canyon, is 277 miles long, 18 miles wide, and 6,000 ft. deep."

That'd be a really good reason to go there.

I wasn't overly impressed with the Big Texan. We ate breakfast there, and it was pretty good, but not spectacular. The place is HUGE though, and the gift shop is neat. They gave my son a cowboy had that he didn't take off for 3 days! LOL!! That free steak reminds me of John Candy in "The Great Outdoors"!

The Cadillac Ranch is also an interesting stop. I hadn't seen it before we went there last year. It's definitely a novelty, but it's worth an hour max. Bring some rattle cans if you're into that kind of thing. We saw it, checked it off the "list".

Palo Duro Canyon State Park
It's been called "Texas' Grand Canyon". Next time we go through there, I'm going to schedule a stop.

Don't know about the route, but I would recommend spending a day or two at Palo Duro Canyon State Park. If the musical "Texas" is still playing at the outdoor amphitheatre inside the park when you swing through, that would be highly recommended. Not much to do in that part of the state, but the Big Texan Steakhouse is a nice tourist trap.
