Close the door, put out the light.

No, they won't be home tonight.

 

The snow falls hard and don't you know?

The winds of Thor are blowing cold.

 

They're wearing steel that's bright and true.

They carry news that must get through.

 

They choose the path where no-one goes.

 

They hold no quarter.

They hold no quarter.

 

Walking side by side with death,

The devil mocks their every step

 

The snow drives back the foot that's slow.

The dogs of doom are howling more.

 

They carry news that must get through

To build a dream for me and you.

 

They choose the path where no-one goes.

 

They hold no quarter.

They ask no quarter.

They hold no quarter.

They ask no quarter.

 

The pain, the pain without quarter.

They ask no quarter.

Without quarter, quarter, quarter.

They give no quarter.

The dogs of doom are howling more!

They give no quarter.

 

I hear the dogs of doom are howling more!

Enchanted Rock State Natural Area near Fredericksburg, TX.

My husband enhanced this shot for me by using the de-haze tool in Lightroom. Now you can see for miles and miles. A fun tool to play with.

It is a pretty good hike up here. I was impressed with my grandchildren. My son took them up here over the Christmas break and they did very well on the hike. They are 5 and 7.

 

Is a pink granite mountain located in the Llano Uplift approximately 17 miles north of Fredericksburg, TX. It covers approximately 640 acres and elevation 1,825 ft above sea level. If you zoom in you can see that the specks are people on their way up. We hiked to the top and hiked a bit on the Loop Trail.

Happy Trails Thursday!

Gillespie County, Texas

Early morning drive to Enchanted Rock reveals the rock in all it's 'pink' glory. Reminds me of a smaller 'Ayers Rock' (Uluru) in Australia.

A night photo I took at Enchanted Rock park un 2019 after hiking to the top

 

I haven't shot one photo of the stars and Milky Way this year due to the closing of Parks because of the pandemic. They're open by reservation but it can be difficult to get on the list . I'm spontaneous when it comes to shooting photos unless I have to go out of town . I would also pick random places in the country but lately I thought about the wild pigs and javelinas I've come across \ seen while going to these spots . It scares the shit out of me when I think about it now especially the fact that I'm out there by myself . If I was with another person or group I wouldn't worry so much. This is another reason why I've been holding off but I'm determined to get out there again before the Milky Way season is over .

I can never get tired of this beautiful place in the heart of the Texas hillcountry. Once it stops raining on the weekend I will be going back to take more photos

40+ days without a drop of rain in Central Texas and it rains on the night with New Moon but luckily the rain stopped just in time before it showering us where we were on top of a huge big piece of big Granite rock. Those two pieces of rocks were found on top of this huge Granite rock called Enchanted Rock.

 

The low hanging clouds and light pollution actually add a bit drama to the shoot as my first attempt on shooting Milky Way!

 

Again, thanks for David be our impromptu model of the night taking the risk climbing to the top of the rocks in the middle of the night shining flashlight toward the Milky Way.

It was well worth it when my wife and I hiked up at 5:30am to get a glimpse of this sunrise as we watched sitting on the Enchanted Rock in Texas! Who said Texas was just flat? =)

Folklore of local Tonkawa, Apache and Comanche tribes ascribes magical and spiritual powers to the rock (hence the name 'Enchanted Rock'). While attempting to hide from Anglo settlers in the area, the natives would hide on the top two tiers of the rock, where they were invisible from the ground below. The first European to visit the area was probably Álvar Núñez Cabeza de Vaca in 1536. The Tonkawa, who inhabited the area in the 16th century, believed that ghost fires flickered at the top of the dome. In particular they heard unexplained creaking and groaning, which geologists attribute to the rock's night-time contraction after being heated by the sun during the day. The name "Enchanted Rock" derives from Spanish and Anglo-Texan interpretations of such legends and related folklore; the name "Crying Rock" has also been given to the formation.

A plaque formerly embedded in Enchanted Rock near the top, but now removed to a kiosk below, reads:

 

From its summit in 1841, Captain John C. Hays, while surrounded by Comanche Indians who cut him off from his ranging company repulsed the whole band and inflicted upon them such heavy losses that they fled.
