Much to my disappointment our route to Perth WA will now be via South Australia and The Nullarbor. I wonder how much business and public interaction the people and traders along The Centre Road are missing out on because of these closed minded DAA Bureaucrats with some sort of agenda are issuing insane and unusable Transit Permits to travel on a Public Road. What is more, I now vow never to spend a dollar in any Aboriginal Enterprise in WA.
This is our camp site in Wintersun CP in Alice Springs. We are situated under a "Rattle Pod" Tree. That is not it's real name as you would have guessed.
The seed pods from the Rattle Pod tree dry crisply and retain their seeds for a time. When a breeze shakes the tree all the seeds rattle like crazy. The pods are about 175mm to 225mm in length. Two seeds remain in this pod.
29 km North of Alice Springs is this marker denoting the crossing of The Tropic of Capricorn.
This marker 19 km North of Alice Springs denotes the point of the highest elevation on the Stuart Highway between Port Augusta and Darwin.
We took a drive out to Standley Chasm and walked through while the sun was shining in on one wall.
Many flowers blooming on the sheer walls of the Chasm.

Directly opposite the Causeway is, of course, The Todd Tavern.
