July 2016

The significant other was off from work, so we drove to Enchanted Rock State Park for a weekend camping trip. The park was significantly smaller than I thought, we managed to combine all trails into a ~20 km walk/hike and "finish" Enchanted Rock in one day.

View from the post-batholith walk. Hot, but at least cloudy.

Aside from the hike up to the large dome of pinkish tan colored granite pluton batholith in the middle of the park, it was mostly just walking.

We had an early start and entered the park around 7:30 am. It was fine around then, when we came back, it was strange to see all the parking spaces filled up. I would highly recommend avoiding starting late (or going there during the weekends).

SO pointing out to an intrusion.
