We've been away for over a week and it seems like it's been much longer. We have been camping out in the desert for most of the time and are presently in Alice Springs. We weren't able to get a camp site with power so using the internet has been a bit of a struggle as the lap top only lasts for 2 hours of battery. However we're having a great trip and the weather has been lovely with sunny days and cold nights. We love camping out in the desert on our own and just enjoying the quiet.
I'll try to upload some photos but may not get many done as our connection is slow. We plan to visit a few of the gorges here tomorrow and will then take the Tanami Track across to Western Australia probably on Monday.
The first photo is of a rock formation called Chambers Pillar which is near Alice Springs and the second photo with the flagpole is the geographical centre of Australia. The next photo is of the river at Mildura where we camped for the first night and the following photo is of the sunset in the desert near the Northern Territory border.
I'll try to post again before we head out into the desert again.
