Sunset Gold at Enchanted Rock 428-1

Enchanted Rock State Natural Area

Prickly pear in bloom are surrounding by a field of golden greenthread in this sunset photograph from Little Rock, a granit mound just southwest of Enchanted Rock. While both locations are in the same state park, I actually prefer this area because it is far less crowded and offers some amazing views. And in spring, the wildflowers and prickly pear add beautiful colors to the rocky landscape. Photo © copyright by Rob Greebon.
