Enchanted Rock won the first round but I was back for redemption. The wind kept me from starting and getting to the summit of Enchanted Rock. Now, I was too solely focused on summiting Enchanted Rock and I was as not prepared with the knowledge of everything else the park had to offer. The park has a cave system that goes through Enchanted Rock. Moss Lake has a great view to Enchanted Rock. I did get great views of Little Rock and Turkey Peak. I am actually afraid of heights so the descent was scariest part of the summit. The steep decline was something I never had experienced before the summit. I had to convince myself that even though I could see over the edge that there was still ground where I could not see ground. I really liked the hike, the views and a sense of accomplishment.
I was hoping for a sign or something that I could pose with to say I made it to the summit. I walked around for awhile and did not find one but I found something better. I found some of the best views from the top of the rock. I took a different path down and I got a better view of how steep the incline was going up the rock.
The park is also known for rock climbing and bouldering. Lastly, I got some good views of Turkey Peak.
Now I know on my third visit I will need to go to Moss Lake, Echo Canyon Trail and Turkey Pass Trail. I have seen so much of the park but there is still so much more of the park I missed. I cannot wait for the part 3 of Enchanted Rock SNA.
The next blog will be the last in the part 2 series and getting lost but in a good way. I seem to get lost a lot.
