The last and only time I went to Enchanted Rock, I repelled down parts of it. I loved it, but haven't been back since. Plus, I never hiked to the top.
I knew it wasn't a very big hike (rises 425 feet above the base elevation of the park), which would be ok after a long day of drinking wine and dancing at Luckenbach,TX. And boy, did we dance.
The weather changed constantly and required layers; there was also the threat of more rain. When the sun came out, it was too warm wearing the my new awesome outfit from Eddie Bauer. But when the clouds socked in, it was cold with the wind.
|We ate at this place called Old German Bakery and Restaurant famous for their German Pancakes. It was so freaking delicious and wished we spent more time here. I highly recommend it if you are ever in Fredericksburg.|
We started the hike up the rock. It was steeper than I thought it would be and we had to stop a few times just for a rest. The scenery was beautiful.
|I don't even know how to caption this picture.|
|Come on baby. I got you.|
We did make it to the top and Giant and I spent some time just sitting and soaking in what we were seeing. It was this kind of view that proves my point of how great Texas is to live. I just couldn't get enough, but it was time to drink some more wine.
|Loved these little vegetation pockets on top of the rock.|
|Our view at the top. It doesn't even do it justice.|
|Is JL watching over us or what?|
|Yes, I had to do the cliché feet shot. I'm not upset about it.|
|I stole their moment and it was so worth it. By far, my favorite picture.|
|Okay, I'm not sure when I got that water stain on my chest. I missed my lip at some point. UGH!|
So, we headed back down the rock (with a few stops for pictures). It was the perfect way to burn some calories. And thankfully, it didn't rain at all on us during the hike.
Overall, I had so much fun on this little getaway. We came back with more wine (and Peach Cider) than we can handle. I got to do some new things and hike a big rock. I can't wait to take more trips like this in the future.
These are some fun pictures we took during our weekend. Sadly, we got none of us at the winery. Hmmmm....
|We went to the famous Albert Dance Hall, which is essentially the town.|
|I can't believe this is my first stop to Luckenbach, TX. I had so much fun. It's another town, which is just the bar.|
