Enchanted Rock is a State and National Landmark and listed in the National Register of Historic Places. It’s a huge, pink granite dome rising 425 feet above ground and 1825 feet above sea level. It covers over 600 acres of land and is huge by any scale. Climbing Enchanted Rock is difficult but well worth the effort as you can see in this image. I could almost touch these rain clouds as the swept in from the west, bringing high winds and cold rain.
Native Americans had inhabited the area for 11,000 years and believed ghostly fires flickered at the top of the dome. They heard the rocks creaking and groaning each night as the moon rose and thought it the song of spirits deep within the pink stone. Sitting here waiting for the sunset, it’s easy to understand their awe of this magnificent place.
