The round rock of Round Rock.

We went to a Round Rock Express minor league baseball game tonight.  We won 4-2 in the bottom of the 9th on a three run, over the fence home run.   Exciting finish.

On the way up there we stopped at the Chisholm Trail park on Brushy Creek.  In the middle of the creek is a large limestone rock, eroded on all sides, which back in the day became known as a marker of the low-water crossing of the creek for indians, travelers and cattle drives of the 1800s.  This is the rock that Round Rock, Texas is named after.

I can’t believe we’ve lived here for 20 years and have never seen THE round rock.   Better late than never.

    • Thank you! On the west side of Chisholm trail, Brushy Creek has a waterfall/waterdam that makes for a nice watering hole. It was pretty popular when we stopped by the other day.
