Today in photos. We walked up, up, up and down, down, down. Broke in our new walking boots.
after 30K of gravel roads and crossing part of the Pinkawillinie Conservation Park sand dunes we arrived at our first stop – Corrobinnie Hill. A massive granite Boulder.
little pink flower growing in the granite
We also spotted a Euro up on the Boulder (a Euro is a type of Kangaroo) very pretty with black ears and red round the head. Saw some Australian ring neck parrots. Both the Euro and the parrots were too swift to get photos of.
If you enlarge the picture above you can just see Ollie in the car. We had parked where I am taking the photo but couldn’t turn around. Ollie then drove up the hill we walked up – but we din’t realise till we walked up that there was room to turn around!!!
Pretty little white flowers all over the scrub plus yellow ones
Next onto Peela Rocks. Another up,up, up, down, down, down.
note the shed – all around the base of the Rock is a channel which collects water (when it rains!!!). This is then channel led into holding tanks and we presume that the shed holds the pumping equipment.
From Peela we backtracked to Mt Wudinna (just learnt it’s pronounced wood Na!!)
We decided to leave climbing this one till Boxing Day. The temp had reached 35 degrees and it was 2 in the afternoon and a 2k hill climb. Even we are not that silly.
From here we went to Pygery Rocks. Guess what we had 5 bars on Optus. Face timed Marj – there she was sitting in our house and enjoying our view!! Great technology when it works. Tried Helen & Roger but we since found out they were out at a boozy lunch.
Remember the shed at Peela Rock – this is the 1896 version. Channels diverted the water from the rocks into here. We assume from the metal poles that some sort of structure was made over the area to prevent the water evaporating.
Hope you enjoyed our day as much as we did
