The Historian

January 31, 2012

“In 1876, I moved my herd into the Panhandle, following an old Indian trail, which led into the banks between canyon Blanco and the main canyon Palo Duro, where we came to the cap rock. The descent was so abrupt and steep that we were compelled to take our wagons to pieces, first unloading them, and let them down into the valley below the ropes.”

-Charles Goodnight
