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.
