Snapshot: Texas Hill Country

 

A snapshot from this past weekend on a quick trip to my home state.  I went on a hike with my mom and sister (families that hike together…) at Enchanted Rock near Fredericksburg, Texas.  This is a pic of one of the rock formations next to the famous granite dome.  It was a lush afternoon after a big rain– great news for a part of the state in a long drought.  This is what wikipedia says about this special place: “The Tonkawa, who inhabited the area in the 16th century, believed that ghost fires flickered at the top of the dome. In particular they heard unexplained creaking and groaning, which geologists attribute to the rock’s night-time contraction after being heated by the sun during the day. The name “Enchanted Rock” derives from Spanish and Anglo-Texan interpretations of such legends and related folklore; the name “Crying Rock” has also been given to the formation.”
