Thanksgiving in Texas -- Nov. and Dec. 2010

Day 9, November 22. Big Spring, TX, to Enchanted Rock State Park. We drove several hours and arrived at Enchanted Rock State Park around noon. Unfortunately, the campground was full due to holiday traffic, so we spent the day hiking down the creek chasing frogs, snakes, birds, and little fish. Later, we huffed and puffed in the south Texas heat and humidity to the summit of Enchanted Rock where a nice, cool breeze cooled things down. We spent the night in the private Western Outpost "campground," which was a cleared area behind the store with a few rocks piles into fire rings. It was serviceable, and the restroom was surprisingly pleasant. Dogs from across the road came to visit, and Liz threw sticks for them until dark.
