Enchanted Rock

These rocks, they're enchanted! I had one of the most magical weekends spent out in Fredericksburg Texas with my boys. Almost everyone I know has been to Enchanted Rock State Park except for me so it was on my list of places to see. These massive domes are made of pink granite (the stuff people pay a lot of money to use as countertops). Enchanted rock rises a whopping 1,825 feet (556 m) above sea level. What a view!
People have camped here for 12,000 years. There are myths of Tonkawa and Comanche Indians who still roam these parts at night, haunting those who dare to camp out. Some people say ghost fires can be seen glittering at night after a rain.. but scientists say they're only reflections of water or wet feldspar. 

Right at sunset we had some food and wine in a secluded area and cheered to more adventure. I won't ever forget this magical place and all of it's beautiful formations.
