Comments: Trusting in the weather forecast's promise of clearing conditions we set out to hike around Enchanted Rock and then summit the rock itself. Conditions did clear, near sundown. We salvaged what we could and hiked a misty, overcast loop around the park. There was a few spots where the slick rocks presented a problem. We'll be back on a sunnier day.
