|Various views of the Palo Duro canyon|

It was nearing 6pm before we eventually left the canyon and drove the 30mins to Amarillo, checking into a hotel and then visited a local Applebee's on the Soncy side of town for a proper 'sit down' evening meal, one which we had not indulged in since North Platte (NE) some 5 days ago. Somehow we managed to waiver the cost of our meals and 1 dessert thanks to our very nice waitress because it was at least 30mins from when we ordered our food and it still hadn't turned up - I'd normally wait an hour or so back in the U.K. for my food after ordering, so it was very nice of them to give our meals to us for free!
Afterwards we headed back to the hotel and sorted out where to head for tomorrow, our last chase day of this trip...
