Cue to Karijini

Cue to Karijini (750kms)

John continues to be surprised at the lack of live kangaroos and emus. Saw lots of white and purple mulla mullahs  and a few good patches of everlastings.

We left Cue at 8.50 am and had a quick drive round town taking in the historic buildings like the jail, police station and post office. Morning tea in the mulga (flies!) and lunch at Kumarina, where there was a talking parrot that said "Hello!)

Stopped for supplies at Mt Newman. After that we enjoyed superb scenery: Namajira scenes: purple and red in the hills lit by the setting sun, with lots of snappy gums in front. Big spoil heaps from the iron ore mines. We had a mad scramble to reach our destination before dark.
