PHOTOS at last!

At last a few photos! I have decided to just pop them all in one post with descriptions rather than trying to post them into each separate post... I might be here all night! :)

The photos are uploaded in small size but if you click on them you will see the full sized image. Enjoy! I plan to upload most/many of the photos to my Online Picasa Album, so here is a link to that site for anyone interested - http://picasaweb.google.com/annemarie55/AcrossOzAdventure I will add to this album continuously and when I return home.

We have seen so many, many wonderful and also very funny sights/signs - will locate the photos on Annie's external hard drive soon and upload a few of them!

Our visit to see The Olgas/Kata Tjuta, Ayers Rock/Uluru, Mount Conner http://www.redcentrerock.info/crags/mt_conner.htm Kings Canyon and the amazing Gosse Bluff crater (created by a comet over 142 million years ago with a million times more power than the atomic bomb!) were absolutely fantastic and very powerful places to be. We also went to a lovely gorge called Redbank Gorge and decided to bush-camp there overnight as the campsite was in such a lovely spot with the mountains all around and incredibly peaceful. We decided to leave off the fly cover over the tent so we could lie and stargaze from our beds! What a wonderful experience and to be in such beautiful surroundings.

Annie and I are currently enjoying 2-3 days here in Alice Springs, treating ourselves to a nice little cabin with all the mod cons and a chance to do some washing! Spent a bit of time shopping in town today and tomorrow we plan to visit the Desert Park. Met some nice people here in the caravan park and joined them for their 'Happy Hour' this evening.

That's all for now... back to uploading more photos! :)
