• Texas Destinations: Enchanted Rock

    Who ever heard of a 1,600 acre rock? Texans, of course, and if you are looking for something to do that won’t break the bank and will actually provide some healthy exercise, you might want to check it out. It makes for a great hike and climb.

    We haven’t been to Enchanted Rock since Colten and Caden were younger; however, the three of us climbed to the top…while Rickey watched, of course! I’m not sure the big rock amazes Texans all that much, but we met many from around the world who were climbing the megarock that day, and all seemed to be having a great time.

    The climb is free with admission to the State Park, and I’d be sure to watch for snakes in warm weather if I were you. However, with fall quickly approaching, it won’t be too terribly long before those pesky critters will be holed up good and tight in their dens, making the perfect time to visit!

      When our son, Mark, was younger, we made a lot of day trips. One to the Enchanted Rock. Mark and I climbed to the very top, and the view, well, I can’t describe it. I was surprised to see little areas in the rock that was holding water, and of course there was little trees and vegetation there. Rumour has it that the Indians thought the place was haunted, because due to the heat and the expansion in the rock, it would make noises as the rock expanded and creaked. Hey, they might have been right. Anyway, this brings back a good memory. Thanks, Fredda.
