July 1st

Our last morning in Alice Springs! We have enjoyed our stay immensely even though we were very busy preparing  Earthy for the next step of our trip.

Jack & Adam Brock arrived by air  to Alice Springs Airport. Everyone  lunched together..then it was Goodbye time to our Renkin friends and the 6 of us set off to explore the East McDonnell Ranges. 

We called to see Emma Gorge and Jessy Gorge, both of which had great examples of
Aboriginal Art. Next stop was Corroboree Rock where we followed a track that gave us a great view of the rock. The bush is healthy with the Red Mallee trees beginning to bloom.There was also excellent examples of Mistletoe which seem difficult to identify. Evidently mistletoe varies depending on the type of tree it is growing in as well as the type of soil the tree is growing in.

The blooms of the Red Mallee Tree 

Tonight we are camping in the dry bed of Benstead Creek with a wonderful camp fact we toasted crumpets on it.
