Mike the navigator puts on a show
Our campsite and swimming hole on Twin Falls Creek
Rachel and I go off hunting for aboriginal art, and find half a dozen sites scattered around some nearby outcrops. This one looks like a ... flower
Rachel on top of the outcrop
The outcrop was dissected by mini canyons, with pillars and chambers
It looks like yoga, but I have no idea why Aman is standing on one leg and Rachel is doing a weird pose with her bowl
Renee traversing a narrow ledge
Mike and Ro took us to another nearby art site. This one was particularly impressive.
This was an intricate scene with hundreds of figures along the wall
They seemed to be fighting each other, as evidenced by the spears sticking out of some of the figures!
Jeanette, Renee, David and Lucy enjoying the shade (and the art on the ceiling)
Lucy returning from the art outcrop
Walking along burnt river banks
Our first swimming hole of the morning - beautiful!
Walking along rocky slabs further downstream
Another swimming hole appears - too hard to resist!
Everyone piles in
Most of the party - Mike, Ro, Col, Jeanette, Rachel, Renee, David
