Was that large body of water at Carawine Gorge by chance ?

After rains at the end of May, water was at bonnet height on the crossing of the Oakover on the dirt track back to Nullagine - but no trouble as it's a good solid base. Gets the heart racing, especially when you're by yourself.

I've spent a bit of time around that area working and have thought for a while it would be nice to do some "exploring".

I'd like to say I'm not jealous...... but that would be the biggest lie I've ever told (and my mum told me you should never lie ).

Another good trip from the looks of it.

The body of water where I had to slum it? yep, that was Carawine. The waterholes were hit and miss. Some were loaded, the rest were bone dry. Skull Springs Rd, even dry it was a challenge.

Yeah I should have swung by, but I wasn't trip leader on this one. I need to go back again, sing out when you are free.

When am I free? Whenever I like! That's the beauty of doing the roster! Well... Within reason of course...

Due to picture quantity, I've split the report in two. Part one ready to roll.

Another awesome report Shane! Thoroughly enjoyable read.
LOL at the Dalaranga crater, we called in there last year on our cross country trip after seeing a spot on the map that simply said "Meteorite Crater” we had visions of some Wolfe Creek style crater, only to find it is actually Australia's smallest confirmed meteorite crater! Underwhelming to say the least.

Looking forward to the 2nd part of the trip report
