|Big Rocks Park...atop the big rocks looking at the Paluxy River|
With less than an hour before sundown, my family and I, pulled over at Big Rocks Park, kicked off our shoes, rolled up our pants, and went to play in the shallow waters of the Paluxy River.

The large limestone rocks have been slowly rounded and carved by the power of the river leaving small valleys and cracks, and caves to play in. My daughter and I spent the better part of an hour climbing up, over, around, and sometimes through these rocks. Our favorite thing became jumping the shallow chasms between rocks. Although the cracks were only 5-6 feet deep and not two feet across my daughter was very nervous each time we jumped. With her hand in mine we braved the rocks together leaping across countless chasms. We were having a blast, but before we knew it the sun had gone down and it was time for us to continue on our way.
