Hey guys, so the other day I climbed a 1800 foot tall rock entitled "Enchanted Rock," better known as Big Ass Rock. I just thought I'd share some pics from my chill time and actually show my ugly @$$.

That looks like a pretty fun rock to climb. Looks like the view from the top is pretty good.

Just imagine sleding down that on some snow!!!

OMG! my backpacking class did a trip there. We scaled that thing the first day and then we had to go up some almost sheer cliffs around the area.

But that cave... did you actually go through it? My friend busted his head open in there because it was so narrow and crazy.

Slash I rolled down the side for a few feet. It was pretty traumatizing.

It was 6 bucks do get into the park, where you could do anything, like camp, swim, picnic, or climb.

Z00Z, we went about 20 feet into the cave, but then it got pitch black and we didn't have a flash light.

+1,

You have to pay to see Stonehenge now. Who the hell is stupid enough to pay to see a "rock".
