Sept 2010 trip - Day 6 - Carnarvon Gorge

Wow, what a day!! Even after having a lazy morning recovering from yesterdays walk we still achieved heaps. We walked up the Lookout at the Campgrounds. An easy 10 min walk to stretch the sore muscles. Great view. AB did a John Travolta pose at the top - see pic
We then headed to Mickeys Creek. Awesome sights in here as we kept going past the end of the formed track and climbed into the Gorge. All of a sudden the temp dropped and the kids forgot all about their sore legs. The massive rock formation above our heads was incredible with water dripping out once the sandstone level ended. There are SO many cool pics to upload from this day but I'm limited to 5 per email :( more later
After the short 3km Mickeys walk we headed back to the Rock pool for a quick swim. Once the kids turned blue from the cold water we headed back to camp.
We leave this place tomorrow (Thurs) and head North east for a few hours. We have a few places picked out but are not sure where we will stop. Hopefully Thursday we get mobile phone coverage again and these last 3 blogs will get sent.
Oh, and the vibe of the place changed today. Everyone became friendly. We met heaps of campers from young families to retired couples to Barristers and Deputy Principals. Quite amazing to see the modest setups of the people with the most to spend. They all just enjoyed getting out and exploring.
