Since we are planning to spend the rest of the spring and summer in New Mexico and Colorado, we need to get our hiking legs back. So today we climbed Enchanted Rock, a 425 ft high pink granite rock. It’s a .6 mile climb, and we came back a few miles along the loop trail around the rock. What a beautiful park, and a scenic 15 mile drive north of Fredericksburg to get there. After spending months along the Gulf Coast and in south Texas, we’ve missed real hiking trails with rocks and hills. It was a fun day.
Lots of bluebonnets and other wildflowers.
At the top of the rock. It was a fairly easy climb.
The trail back down through Echo Canyon.
Can you see the spade, heart and diamond? No club, though.
The trail back to the car.
Which went around Moss Lake.
It was nice to be on a real hike. And since this was a Texas State Park, our pass got us in without having to pay the $6 per person entrance fee.
