If you've been reading the blog over the past couple weeks, you probably saw a sneak peek of our spring break trip to Enchanted Rock. Today I wanted to share a more in-depth look at our mini-adventure.
We had an early spring break this year - the first full week of March. We hadn't done much traveling since we got back from our honeymoon, so we decided we would use that opportunity to go somewhere on Our 2018 Travel List.
Enchanted Rock happens to be about an hour from where my in-laws live, so we drove down to stay with them on Sunday morning and made the trip to Enchanted Rock on Tuesday. We got to the park around 9:30, paid the $7 each for entry, and picked up a map of the trails.
Unfortunately, Daniel had been having some neck pain all week, so the climb up the steep rock was not too fun for him. I was fully prepared to attempt to trek to the very top - I hear there are little pools of water and caves to explore, not to mention the amazing view! However, once we got going a little ways it was clear Daniel wasn't in the best shape to do it.
We still enjoyed the view from the spot we climbed to, though!
Once we descended the rock, we pulled out our hammock and picnic basket and settled between two trees for a bit. We actually took a nice nap. When we woke up we got soft serve ice cream from the little food truck at the park then walked the creek bed at the base of the rock.
Overall, it was a really fun trip. The weather was perfect, and the park was nice. We saw lots of families with young kids - even a woman with a baby strapped to her front climbed right past us with her toddler in tow! We hope to go back some time and actually make it to the top.
What fun adventures did you enjoy over spring break?
