From Karajini our plan was to head to Francois Peron National Park. This was a big drive, so we decided to break it up by having a couple of nights at Kennedy Range.
On the way out we drove up Jarndunmunha to see the view of Tom Price. The impact of the mine on the landscape was huge from this vantage point. Australia’s wealth is certainly leaving a huge scar in the heart of the country here.
It was a long day of driving made a bit longer after we blew a tyre at 5pm on the trailer. It was the one that copped the impact when the leaf spring broke so perhaps it was weakened from that. Everyone got out and helped change it though super fast.
The Kennedy Range is an impressive formation that rises from the surrounding plains. We chose to relax a little here but Andrew and I did make it to Honeycomb Gorge to admire this unique formation. The gorge here is very wide and in its heart is a huge soft honeycomb formation that has an eerie feel to it. I personally felt quite sad in this space, perhaps due to the physicality of the space and the nature of the formations.
The drive out was quite spectacular as you looked out over the long range. It was also a landscape filled with emus, lizards and loads of stunning wildflowers.
