Flinders Ranges

Last weekend, we went away for a few days to the Flinders Ranges in South Australia which is situated just before the desert. Its quite remote and very dry but very interesting. It was very dry and warm and we were only one month into spring, couldn't imagine what it will be like this summer!
We were quite suprised to see many herds of cattle and sheep, lots of sheep actually, feeding from salt bushes. Some were in quite barren paddocks and looked quite scrawny, alot were allowed to roam accross the road, it was very cool.

There were numerous ruins and I guarantee tons yet for us to discover next time we visit. It really was a fascinating place to visit, we quite enoyed it.

In Wilpena Pound, we really wanted to do the walk up St Mary's Peak but Maya had other ideas. I have a really good carrier to do hikes with that allow front, back and hip positions but Maya just didn't want to have a bar of it. I guess she just wanted to run around and explore. There were many Kangaroos and Euros there which suprised us as they would get quite close. We even saw the odd goat which was a bit strange.
