I was there for the Western Trauma Course (feel much better prepared for those pesky motor vehicle accidents), Ade was there for the ride.
And what a ride...sadly the photos, once again, do no justice to the magnificence of the Pilbara.
|Driving into the Hamersley Ranges|
We drove the short way, along the Access Road. The Access Road is owned by Rio Tinto and exists to provide access for works to the railway between TP and Karratha, it also saves about an 1.5 hours on the bitumen. To drive on the road we had to get a permit by watching a short film at the Tourist Information Office (safety, safety, safety).
|We came out on the TP road and went home along the Munjina track|

|Sturt's Desert Pea, littering the roadside all the way to Karratha. This pretty bloom is the floral emblem of South Australia so, like myself, can often be found a long way from home!|

Happy Mother's Day to all :)
