Enchanted Rock

Enchanted Rock in central Texas Llano County has become quite the tourist attraction. Folks come for the challenge of climbing to the top. The hill is solid pink granite, the same granite used to build our state capitol. With the rounded shape, as one climbs, toward the top it gives the illusion of the top being close long before it is. Those spots on the top are climbers. Yes, I did climb to the top but several years ago, I was much younger then. Have a blessed day Y'all!! <><

That was a fascinating story behind the picture and adds to the excitement as to what it is about. That must have worn a lot of
climbers out thinking they were close. Those people look like little ants. Wonderful story, beautiful picture Nancy. #11692117
