If you’ve read yesterday’s post about packing for the Texas Landscape Safari, you might be asking yourself “why all the worry about packing emergency supplies, extra water and first aid kit for a short photowalk in the Hill Country?”.
Some of the best photographic opportunities in all of central Texas are in the Enchanted Rock State Natural Area at the top of this 350 foot tall granite dome and it’s 425 foot bigger sister. The climb from this side is very steep but manageable, ascending 425 feet in a little over 1/2 mile. Anyway you do the math, it’s one steep slope. The view from the top of Little Rock (pictured here), Enchanted Rock or Freshman Mountain is spectacular and on a clear day you can see most of the way south to Fredericksburg. It’s a photographic opportunity not to be missed!
