Enchanted Rock May Sunset 505-1

Enchanted Rock

Evening falls across the Enchanted Rock area. Here, a Quinta Mazatlan cactus, also referred to as the purple candle, takes the spotlight, showing off its beautiful colors in the evening sun. Behind it, prickly pear cacti display their colors of orange and gold. In May this area is an amazing place to explore, and cactus and wildflowers of various colors put on a vibrant show.
