Hill Country Prickly Pear Blooms May 1

Enchanted Rock State Natural Area

Freshman Mountain and Buzzard’s Roost rise near the pink granite in the Llano Uplift. This photograph was taken on a beautiful late spring afternoon from Turkey Peak. To the left (not pictured here) is Enchanted Rock, but I prefer the much less crowded views from Turkey Peak and Little Rock. Here, prickly pears bloom in the afternoon sun.
