Comments: A granitic magma has pushed its way up through overlying limestones in Central Texas, an area known generally as the Llano Uplift, to form the large dome known today as Enchanted Rock. Temperature fluctuations & freezing & thawing cause the upper layers of the granite to separate, or flake off, or exfoliate from the underlying mass. These exfoliated slabs can be huge. Enchanted Rock is the 2nd largest exfoliated dome in the U.S. Here exfoliation is just beginning as seen by fracturing in the granite. Coreopsis is growing in these fractures.
