Enchanted Rock

by Stephanie Suesan Smith, Ph.D. on January 12, 2011

This is Enchanted Rock, a huge granite outcropping in Central Texas.  It was called Enchanted Rock because the granite would absorb heat during the day, then groan as it released it during the night.  There were also rumors of people being sacrificed by being thrown off the rock, adding to the spookiness of it.  During the summer it was absolutely boiling hot and very high to climb.  It was still high in the fall, but the cooler weather made it easier to reach the top.  It is now a state park so anyone can visit it.

Hi Stephanie

Just been over to your guest post. Enjoyed the interview. An Australian cattle dog eh??!! Hope he’s behaving and giving us Aussies a good rap 😉

I love the photo and the story in this picture. Our large monolith Uluru is a photographers delight as it changes colour at sunrise and sunset. I have visited and taken photos there many years ago. It was quite amazing to stand and watch it happening.

Sandy is a red heeler (Australian Cattle Dog) and is a good dog, so no worries, mate. Is Uluru the rock that is sacred to the first nation peoples in Australia?
