I just found this thread. I Live in Amarillo. October ( Indian Summer) is a great time of year on the high plains. Mild days and cool evenings are the rule but the weather can be very unpredicitble. Palo Duro Canyon is all dressed up in the fall, great colors, clear skies with lots of deer and turkey as well. I will be moving to a new home and have a daughter that is getting married in the fall. No confirmed dates yet but I might be able to help get a West Texas meet organized.
