Hello dear friends,
As promised here are some photos of our road trip to the Northern Territory. The journey took a month and we squeezed as much into our schedule as possible. Some days we were exhausted.
A good exhausted.
I have decided to mostly post photos as I think they tell the story for themselves, although it was much more stunning than they can show.
Our first stop was
Here we are with our back packs on and ready for the big six kilometre hike around the rim of Kings Canyon. Note the white legs, this happens to us southerners over winter!
Up we go...
By this time I am beginning to realise just how unfit I was. It was steep! I had to stop and rest to catch my breath.
But I knew the views at the top would be worth it.
These also took my breath away.
People on the other side of the canyon...
Tucked away in a corner of the canyon was this.
It is called the Garden of Eden.
More people, this time taken from the opposite side.
I know this as a Jimmy lizard, but I think it may be one of these.
The car park in the distance as we were coming back down...
There were dingoes wandering everywhere around the park where we were staying. This one went into the store and stole the poor soft toy in the next picture. When he realised it wasn't edible he walked away. They are so cheeky.
This one made himself comfortable at a campsite. It was very warm and he was looking for a cool spot.
On the day we were leaving this one (it could be the same one as above) passed by close to our caravan. He was looking for food.
The dingoes howled all night long and it was a little scary to walk to the amenities at night.
Kings Canyon is isolated and there is no phone signal. The only contact we had with the outside world was by pay phone. The old fashioned way.
Back soon with the next leg of our journey,
