Enchanted Rock State Natural Area

5 01 2010

I shot this photograph of my dad and my cousin Bill in the 90s when we took a day trip to Fredericksburg, Texas. Enchanted Rock State Natural Area spans more than 1600 acres north of Fredericksburg. The Rock is a pink granite exfoliation dome that rises 425 feet above ground, 1825 feet above sea level, and covers 640 acres. Now that’s a big rock! It is one of the largest underground rock formations uncovered by erosion (batholiths) in the U.S.

We haven’t been since the youngest was about four. Our boys scaled that thing like mini mountain goats.

Hi Deb! That’s right, you’re in Texas, aren’t you?
