Let's start with the one Susan and I Volksmarched yesterday:
This 10K (6.2 mile)
|Enchanted Rock - a pink granite batholith|
Yes, we both had to stop to rest, but I had the camera so it only looks like Susan is resting. Bwahahahaha.
|Scenery from part-way up the rock.|
|Lots of resting on the way up.|
|The views of Texas Hill Country are getting pretty great now.|
|At the top of Enchanted Rock.|
|Here we are, we survived the climb.|
|Wildflowers in bloom|
|Unique rock formations|
|Cacti in bloom|
|Cousin Itt's family|
|Strange erosion patterns.|
|Wine cup wildflower|
|Raccoon tracks in the mud.|
|Cacti blooms or berries?|
|Susan investigates cacti "blooms."|
|Granite batholith "shedding"|
|Texas earless lizard, and a fearless one at that!|
After our walk we were hungry and Fredericksburg was just a few miles down the road. Wheeler's Restaurant was our choice. Susan had a burger, fries and onion rings. I had the #10 German plate with a beef sausage, hot potato salad, red cabbage and sauerkraut. Very tasty.
A couple of other Texas State Parks we really like are: McKinney Falls and Palmetto.
