Returning from Uluru to Alice Springs, we passed some stunning landscape
as we headed for Simpsons Gap in the West MacDonnell Ranges. Flanked by towering cliffs,
we followed the Creekbed Walk along the edge of Roe Creek.
It’s hard to imagine how this sandy bed
managed to carve the gorge that is Simpsons Gap.
The permanent waterhole attracts an abundance of wildlife
and is home to the black-footed rock wallaby. I think we were there at the wrong time of day to see any.
Pretty spot, I seem to remember the water was freezing.
Maybe that’s why the wallabies weren’t paddling?
the colours are beautiful !
Nature has a wondrous palette.
