Off we go on our trip to Flinders Ranges.
We have no idea what to expect on this nearly 1300km drive and so our coolbox is full
with ice, drinks, snacks, our own pillows and not to forget the more important items
like Mobiles, Ipads, navigator and all the electronic devices we can't imagine living
without anymore :) Little did we know.... !!!!
And then it started..kms and kms of long roads like this.
Scenes like this, very bare with no greenery, barely any trees and wheat fields as
far as the eye can see.
Herbies last resting place?? :)
The further we got, the hotter it got, till it peaked at 40degrees!!
After 8 hours driving we finally arrived at Mildura, where we spent the night.
A sudden change of scenery... imagine how surprised we were to see palm trees!!
and beautiful Jacaranda trees!!
Of course we can't forget the Geocaching we did on the way.
Nope the cache is not there B... get your head out of that hole
and look alittle bit more to the right. :)
We left Mildura for the rest of the journey.. and back to dry and bare scenery.
We found this huntsman spider sitting under a Geocache which B. was brave enough to retrieve.
Another interesting stop.. the Boot camp :)
It looks like a storm is brewing???
After nearly 12 hours drive we finally arrived at our apartment at Rawsley Park Station in Hawkers, Flinders Ranges. The last part of the drive was very slow because of all the Kangeroos on the road.
The expected storm did arrive and I was able to take my first over lightening photos :)
This lightening cause power failure in my parts of South Australia, as well as our park. We had generators for electricity but for the rest of our stay in Flinders we had no mobile reception and no internet.. How did we live without these things before?????????
