You don't have to travel to the Northeast to experience beautiful fall color. Visit this ancient grove of maple trees at Lost Maples Natural Area. It's a perfect getaway for the fall, but the park is beautiful year round.
Enchanted Rock is a state natural area in Fredericksburg, Texas, whose main attraction is this large pink granite hill. On weekends, you'll have to get to the park early in order to secure a spot to get in.
