    Thorny devils. Endemic to AUS. Some cool info if you read up on them. At the reptile center in Alice Springs.

    West MacDonnell Range outside of Alice Springs

    This is Standley Chasm a series of gorges and cuts in the rock Dating to billions of years old

    This spot we hiked the 2km up to it twice to see the sunlight strike and walk across the chasm at high noon as it painted the walls and brought out the deep color changes of the Outback

    Pretty cool just watching it change right before your eyes. There is nothing like the colors that I have ever see out there

    Just like Kings Canyon a few hours south, they just rise up in the middle of the desert A6148782-1854-46A4-B8B8-DCC993351ABE.jpeg

    Huge gum tree in one of the dry river beds.

    Returning to Alice Springs after a day trip that ran late. Actually passing a Holden Dealer 122DDEA0-6B84-4B2D-A240-543945785834.jpeg

    Gum tree in the East MacDonnell Range the next day. Trephina Gorge 60084962-0CB6-47C6-98AA-5044A470E40B.jpeg 2415D126-B02F-4D4C-9E66-278F770E79B8.jpeg

    Ross River Resort. Good history at this link. From the late 1800s.

    Currently has only 15000 acres and I surrounded by ranches with near 1 million acres and stockyard holding penas of 10000 acres.

    They round up the cattle on the property twice per year by helicopter and ATVs.

    Morning on the road in the Outback. A couple of long days driving to eat up the 1300km to get down south for the second half of the trip. FC8C07D5-0465-40C7-98F1-AAC88D1E6582.jpeg

    Royal Flying Doctors airstrip in the middle of the Outback on the only highway that cuts north to south between Adelaide and Darwin. Some 3200km.

    Another road train but at a favourite stop of ours the Kulgera Roadhouse. We camped for the night on the way north and fueled on the way south. The landscape and red dirt is just not like anything. 7FB24147-E9DB-4E08-ADE3-CCE714A6D491.jpeg

    Chateau Tununda Barossa Valley. The entire region is known for their Shiraz.

    They make some great guns as well. One of the favorites was gin infused with Shiraz wine.
