The night sky views are stunningly spectacular at Enchanted Rock State Natural Area, an International Dark Sky Park in Fredericksburg, Texas. A picturesque 95-mile jaunt from Austin, this massive pink granite dome-shaped rock formation draws thousands of campers, hikers, rock climbers, stargazers, and geocache enthusiasts annually. After a determined twenty-minute walk (of moderate effort) up to the top of Enchanted Rock, we reached the summit in plenty of time to appreciate its 360-degree hilltop views, explore a small cave, and watch the golden glow of sunset before happily settling in at twilight for what turned out to be incredibly vivid stargazing on a very dark, barely-lit, new-moon evening.
