June 19th....DAY 3

After a 4 deg morning we travelled north all day on the Kidman Way which was an excellent road but
marred by the constant rubbish on the roadside. It was good to travel through Mallee style country again,
 good to see the Mallee Eucalypt trees interspersed with Native Pines, Bimble Box Eucalyptus trees and Currajong trees.
One feature we had not seen before was rows and rows of harvested cotton rolled into bales, presumably waiting to go to the Cotton Gin for processing.
In Cobar we were pleased to find a good Tyre Repair Service Station to repair a slow leaking tyre. The tyres on EC are big and heavy for John to change and repair. The correct equipment made the job easy and cost only $30.

Tonight we have camped in the Gundabooka National Park which is known as The Stone Country. The temperature is much more acceptable. We sat around a campfire with some new friends.

A tyre repaired is a good one!
