The following are some picture of the outback. These were taken on my last visit to ‘the big smoke down south’. They give a reasonable example of the type of region I hang out in. Actually I live another 80 odd Km from all this grand form of human activity. Sorry but no kangaroos o emus about that day. Kangaroos tend to come out around dusk and early morning. You get a few as road kills depending on feed and time of year. When they feed on the road edges they also take the attitude they own the road as well. This does not help their life expectancy unfortunately. Emus don’t often come close to the roads and occasionally you will see a family group in the distance. The following 3 pictures are made up from a mosaic of several shots. Unfortunately the size has shrunk a bit, (e.g. from 6000 pixels wide to 600 pixels wide) All of these 3 panoramic sets link up as along single picture. It was just easier to put then together as 3 separate groups. Looking south-east toward the El Alamein army camp and civilised section of this training area. Includes the Baxter Centre. The Baxter centre will be returned to the army at some bureaucratic time in space. El Alamein is the top half of a very large training area which also includes live fire areas. The other half is called Cultana. That is the name of one of the old pastoral stations purchased by the army. Take it from me El Alamein is the nice section. I have plodded across the Cultana range a bit too often for my personal liking. This set is faces more south-south-east from the above and links to the left hand side of the above. This one faces more south toward a place/region called Lincoln Gap. It is a gap between two sets of hills/ranges. Rail, road and water pipeline run through here. This is a picture approaching one of the many creeks. Yes dry as the proverbial bone. Occasionally there is water but it is rare, water in it is counted in blue moons. Don’t be deluded about the trees and vegetation. In many areas there is a lot of theses trees. Most are 2 - 3 m high. They form a thick foliage cover and it is not easy to navigate or see much in these areas. I have known numnuts with GPSs getting confused and misplaced. The creek here is called Mayall Creek. There are a few other picture in my album here. If I get some other interesting ones I will add them.
