The Texas night sky is truly "Big & Bright." This view of the Milky Way was captured in Caprock Canyons State Park and Trailway on a beautiful October evening. The Milky Way in the West Texas night sky rises in dynamic contrast the to park's bison monument.
Located in the Panhandle of Texas, Caprock Cayons is the Lone Star State's 3rd largest park. The Texas State Bison Heard--genetic descendants of the famed Charles Goodnight herd--roams the park's plains. The Clarity Tunnel, along the abandoned Fort Worth & Denver Railroad line, provides habitat for a healthy bat colony. The decommissioned rail line offers hikers, bikers, and equestrians a 64.25 mile trailway between Estelline (TX) and South Plains (TX).
