This framed print of Enchanted Rock just sold to a couple who recently got engaged there. Enchanted Rock is a magical place, the largest pink granite monadnock in the United States, and has a history of human visitation going back at least 11,000 years.
There are numerous myths about the rock, such as it was “revered by native tribes as a holy portal to other worlds”, that “anyone spending the night on the rock becomes invisible”, and that there exist “many spirits in the tunnels” under the rock. (source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Enchanted_Rock)
My favorite myth, though, is that in the 70’s, hippies used to hang out there doing psychedelics (so I am told), and grooved on the eerie noises of the sun-warmed rock cooling at night. 🙂
I’ve visited several times, but as yet, I haven’t wandered through the caves under the rock. Putting it on my local bucket list.
