On the road western australia

Tripping around WA in our 21ft caravan and Ford Ranger

The dry atmosphere is kind to old vehicles
History is a major part of the outback
Dam created over 100 years ago to provide water for travellers between Perth and Kalgoorlie

Dams make great swimming holes

Safe ..... Must be, just don't drink any
When it is over 40deg. Any water is good water
An outback pub is a great meeting place

Heat and distance are new for us

Long shadows and clear skys
Light on traffic

The outback makes its own shapes

Lake Ballard Metal figures. 51 in total

Wheat and outback go hand in hand

The paddocks are so big you can't see the boundaries
Wheat belt

The most stunning beaches we have ever seen

Squeaky white sand
Have to sort this fishing thing. So different from NZ

Rock climbing

A testing walk
Would help if I had longer legs
Frenchmans pass. A fantastic climb, steep and challenging
Rock climbing in the wind.

On the road

Road trains only seen this big in the outback
There is something new at the end of every straight

Preserving history is part of the outback

Farm machinery used to tame the bush
As people walk the tracks they bring back things they find for other to view

Memories are made every day

Sun set in the outback is something you have to experience to appreciate
So many photos it is difficult to show them all. The best answer is for you to experience in your own time.

Life is for living and unfortunately we don't know when the clock is going to stop ticking. All of us are counting down and there is no way to stop the clock. All we can do is try and experience as much as we can with the time given.
