Have you ever seen ANYTHING this high in Ohio that wasn't man-made?

Correct.

It's a really great hike. Wonderful views, a nice drive from San Antonio. My daughters and I like to go up there. We bring a big lunch and just hang out all day.

We've made the hike a couple times with the kids. Cool site and sight.

I recently heard there are caves at E Rock. Have you seen those?

Beware the caves...

The local Comanche and Tonkawa Indians both feared and revered the rock, and were said to offer sacrifices at its base. One Indian tradition holds that a band of brave warriors, the last of their tribe, defended themselves on the rock from the attacks of other Indians. The warriors, however, were finally overcome and killed, and since then Enchanted Rock has been haunted by their ghosts. Another legend tells of an Indian princess who threw herself off the rock when she saw her people slaughtered by enemy Indians; now her spirit is said to haunt Enchanted Rock. Yet another tale tells of the spirit of an Indian chief who was doomed to walk the summit forever as punishment for sacrificing his daughter; the indentations on the rock's summit are his footprints. Finally, there is the story of a white woman who was kidnapped by Indians but escaped and lived on Enchanted Rock, where her screams were said to be audible at night.
