Enchanted Rock [Travel]

Enchanted Rock is located approximately 1.5 hours north of San Antonio and 17 miles away from Fredericksburg Texas. Enchanted Rock is a huge granite pink rock that rises approximately 425 feet above the surrounding terrain to elevation of 1,825 feet above sea level. It is the largest pink granite monadnock in the United States.  

We have been trying to visit Enchanted Rock for a while, but it was always packed. To avoid the crowds, we decided to go late and catch the sunset. We got there around 4 pm without a problem and sure enough a lot of families, boys scouts, hiking groups and college kids, but it was not as packed as in the mornings. 

It was an overcast day, but no chance of rain, so it was perfect. Going up the rock you can see beautiful flowers, lots of birds and big piles of different shapes of rocks. I took lots of pictures.When we got to the summit my boyfriend and I sat down for a few minutes to admire the scenery. I thought it was going to be a long and steep hike, but it was just perfect. It was a lot of fun and a great experience.

If you have the chance of visiting this park, you will not regret it.
Enchanted rock is located at 16710 Ranch Rd 965, Fredericksburg, TX 78624.
