When I was about 20, my best friend and I took a climbing class at Enchanted Rock. One night coming back from dinner in town we missed the entrance to the park, and for those that don't know the road goes in and out of open grazing land, crossing multiple cattle guards.

We came over a small hill and in the blink of an eye there were 15-20 cows in the middle of the road. One of the cows was standing broadside to the road, my friend swerved just enough to clear it's front legs but it's head came right up the hood and smashed the windshield. (We were going about 45 miles an hour at the time.)

After stopping the car, we got out to look for what we thought would be a decapitated cow. Instead, we couldn't tell which cow we hit, and they just looked at us and wandered off into the brush. No sign of dead cow anywhere!

There was a house near by, so we knocked on the door and told the guy we hit a cow. "Did you kill it?" he asked. When we said no he told us not to worry about it then.

The five-hour drive home with a shattered windshield and no driver's-side mirror was not fun.
