We actually started in Dallas,Tx however we started the fun part of the ride in Vernon. Left Vernon on US 70 which was a really nice ride, going through Crowell,Paducah and Matador. We then caught Hwy 86 which took us to Caprock. Beautiful! Took Hwy 207 to Claude; pretty straight but had some really nice canyon views. Shot over to Canyon,Tx and grabbed a Motel (go to Amarillo...cheaper and rooms book early in Canyon on weekends).
