Day 24

Tuesday 7th    Traveling to Lawn Hill

We got away from Gregory river by 9 am, sad to be leaving but will be calling back on our way south. Wonderful drive to Adels Grove where we had morning tea. Then another 10 km to Lawn Hill NP. The scenery is so beautiful and changes so often I have taken shots along the way from the vehicle as we are driving. Very hot, 35 deg. Lots of birds. I’m going on the boat cruise as there is no way I can row 6 km. I will then walk to the falls in the afternoon. Had a cold shower to cool off then got tea. We are here for 2 full days then leave Friday 10th. We have full telstra coverage 4G with blue tick.

The road to Lawn Hill, some of the tar sealed roads were worse than gravel roads.

This is the road to Adels Grove. It is a Caravan Park. Been very wet here two weeks ago so we have timed it nicely, lovely and green really.

Still not much water for the animals, but better than none.

Beautiful red soil and rocks. Very crumbly looking. The skies are so blue.

Good amount of foliage.

Well, this is the colour of the Lawn creek/river.

Termite mounds, I have seen them reds, browns, creams, I’ve been told that what ever the colour of the soil then that’s the colour of the mounds. Makes sense.

These are Crimson Finches, on the tree in our camp spot. How lucky. The red one is the male, other two females.

Went for a bit of a walk and just love the colours in the rock face, but trees are growing out of cracks, make them hardy up here to survive.
