This was the part of my trip I'd really been looking forward to. There are about 20 million people in Australia, and 85% of them live within a one-hour drive of the coast. Geographically, the Australia is approximately the same size as mainland U.S. The interior of the country is sparsely populated, and is mostly classified as "semidesert".
'Roos, Camels, and Emus...Eat Some Today! Actually, I did end up eating Kangaroo on my trip. Tastes like beef.
There's a lot of nothing in the outback. Next service station in 463km (287mi).
Myself, Linda, Talc Alf, and Becky. Talc Alf is a rather curious gentleman who lives in the middle of nowhere and sells sandstone carvings. He has a exhaustive set of theories on how letters and words were created, and is only too happy to interpret any name you wish to throw at him.
It's a big pit.
Becky courageously volunteered to let our driver, Bill, paint her face using the ochre.
Our first night was spent at the Flinders Ranges. In the morning we climbed up Mt. Ohlssen Bagge to get a view of Wilpena Pound (which is basicly a circle of mountains).
