Flinders Ranges Part II

At Mt. Caernarvon cairn there is a book to write comments in, and a family who had visited a couple of days before us reported that “mum only closed her eyes a few times!” I’m sure this mum will be reminded of that for years to come and we wondered how she coped with the rest of the trip as there were a number of ‘challenging’ areas still ahead as we discovered.
The trip was very carefully charted with kilometre readings pointing to the many features along the way including the Bunkers Reserve which is a private protected area purchased by the Yellow Footed Rock Wallaby Preservation .We were disappointed to only see one Rock Wallaby but felt compensated with the family of emu’s and many Euros or Hills kangaroos and birds we saw along the way.
The country is just so magnificent none of our photos will do it justice and we just kept stopping and looking which is probably why the trip took us from 9am until 5pm – 8 hours when in the accompanying notes suggest a total of 5-6 hours! However every moment was worth it and the final stop at The Skull which we have included a photo of was breathtaking.
