Enchanted Rock SP
This past Labor Day weekend, the pack decided to take a trip out into the "wilderness" of Texas. Julie had been wanting to see the Llano Uplift, so we went to see a part of it at Enchanted Rock State Park north of Fredricksburg, TX. We hiked about 3 miles around the large granitic batholith that has been on the crustal surface even through the period when Central Texas was under the waters of the great inland sea. Since it has been so wet, there were plenty of bajadas and water catchment areas that the dogs enjoyed finding and playing in. Julie even brought home some samples of the pink granite (high in potassium) for her rock garden and Geology class.
