Texas Adventures: Enchanted Rock

We had an exciting adventure this past weekend camping at Enchanted Rock. Addy absolutely loved it, she’s totally a nature girl. Uncle Ryan even came and camped with us!

Enchanted Rock is about an hour or so west of of Austin. Taylor took Friday off of work and we headed west. In total our drive was about 4.5 hours. The campground designed a bit differently than we were used to, but it was fun(and super busy!) We brought our stuff in to the our site by crossing a little creek and walking down a path.

After unpacking we played at the playground for a bit and explored another creek.

After playing Uncle Ryan made it to our camp site and we help him set up and then bought firewood and started our campfire.  Addy loved watching the fire.

We had a very earlier riser on Saturday. Addy was a 4:30 AM alarm clock. We have no idea why she was up so early, but it was tough. The campground was super busy and loud the night before so we knew it may turn in to a rough day for the family. Taylor cooked us breakfast and we got ready for our morning hike.

We hiked up to the top of Enchanted Rock. We had borrowed a hiking pack for her and she loved riding in it! She actually napped for a short 10 minuted until we were back at our site. The poor thing was exhausted, but wanted to look and watch everything. By this time in our day it had gotten pretty warm out and she was not going to nap in the tent. We made a parental decision that we were going to head home later in the afternoon because Addy was on the verge of meltdown central since she was so tired. We ate lunch, packed everything up and did one last short hike before we left.

We had a great time on our short trip.  We can’t wait for our camping adventures this summer!
