This spring break, it's likely no surprise that people are hitting Texas parks en mass.
Texas Parks and Wildlife is urging spring breakers to consider visiting some of their lesser-known Texas State Parks, as many are reaching capacity early in the day.
The morning of March 13, a photo posted to Enchanted Rock's Facebook page showed a series of car lights stretching to the end of the roadway as the sun was just beginning to rise.
"Good morning! We took this photo of our line for park entry this morning at 7:30am. If you are not in line already, you are unlikely to be able to enter today," the Facebook post said.
