Enchanted Rock, TX - looking southish
Photo and caption by Rex Raymond
Enchanted Rock is a unique and almost otherworldly place, and looks in parts almost more like Mars than Earth. There is nothing like this place anywhere else in the region. When approaching it, it almost appears as if it was just plopped down in the middle of the Texas Hill Country. I took this photograph over the 2012 Thanksgiving weekend. Even though there were hundreds of people scrabbling around the rock at the time (and many more waiting in their cars to enter the area), I managed to get this shot, free of humans, so that the viewing experience could be pure.
