Best Place To Camp

Enchanted Rock

What's a batholith? Hint: it's not something that has fangs and destroys horcruxes (nerd!), but rather an underground rock formation. Oh, but our batholith is big, pink, and partially above ground. Climb atop it and scream: "I'm the king of the batholiths!" (Double-nerd!) And what's the best thing about camping out at Enchanted Rock? All the creepy groaning and creaking noises the rock makes in the middle of the night. It's like staying at Grandma's but with less sleeper-sofa, more moths, and fewer mothballs.
