the Great Sandy Gardens …

After a tiring 1400km round trip, a few pics to whet the appetite. A wonderful and diverse region of flora and fauna, I have decided to change the name from Desert to Gardens, if the mapmakers want to change it to something that better describes the area. Click to enlarge …

It was cold, but sunny, and a week or two following some rain from a cloud band that went through WA’s North West. The Kidson Track travels from near Sandfire through to the Canning Stock route.
