Panhandle not-so Plain

Posted on June 29th, 2009

I just returned from a work-related trip to the Texas Panhandle Plains region, and I gotta admit the area wasn’t nearly as ordinary as I expected. From a jaw-droppingly stunning canyon to the state’s largest history museum to unexpected entertainment in a small town, my experience was pleasantly plain-free.

The Panhandle isn’t near the top of most people’s vacation destinations. OK, it isn’t anywhere on the list. But it should be. Or it at least deserves consideration for adding an extra day to the itinerary when passing through on a cross-country trip.

I discovered some great family-friendly destinations, soaked up the wide-open vistas, and experienced authentic down-home Texas-style eateries. I’ll detail these worthy locales in upcoming posts; meanwhile, here’s a sampling of my nearly 300 photos -- a surprising number of captivating images from an area that’s far from ordinary.
