Here’s a shot taken earlier this week during the Texas Landscape Safari at Enchanted Rock State Natural Area near Fredericksburg, Texas. Enchanted Rock is a huge granite dome that rises 425 feet above the ground, or about 1800 feet above sea level. This incredibly huge “batholith” (Google it) covers 640 acres making it one of the largest rock formations uncovered by erosion in the United States. And yes, the climb to the top is as steep as it looks but well worth the effort!
