West to Docker River

July 17th Sunday

Clear blue sky. Thankfully the road is acceptable with obvious muddy patches which are drying out quickly.
Honey Grevillias are in bloom amongst the low eucalypt scrub. Some areas have been burnt and the black is attractive against the red sand dunes.
We visited Lasseter's Cave – an historic place where Lasseter spent his last days as he searched for a reef of gold. We lunched amongst the River Red Gums.

Mid afternoon settled into the Docker River Camping Ground for a peaceful night under the Desert Oak trees. A dingo was evident as he wandered around the area and eventually howled very loudly about 9.00pm. It is a very spooky sound!
