Shannon Blalock fell in love with Palo Duro Canyon State Park in Canyon, and now, she’s the boss.

She has been the superintendent of the park for about one month.

“A few years ago, I visited and went home and told my husband if there was ever an opportunity, I wanted to apply,” Blalock said. “I went through the competitive process and got the job. It’s a dream park for me.”
