The Gorges part 2
Arriving at Karijini we drove to Fortescue Falls. I climbed down the path into the Gorge to walk from there to Circular Pool. Some 1 1/2 kms away.
The Falls are around the corner but it was too slippery to walk on so could not get a photo.
Fern Pool along the Gorge.
Walking along the Gorge is just awesome.
To see photo better click to enlarge.
Brilliant Rock Formations
A narrow pillar.
Someone had built a small pyramid out of the stones
Then people just keep adding to it and built more.
Some of the stepping stones I had to walk over to cross ponds.
After 1 1/2 hours of walking, climbing up and over rocks I reached Circular Pool. It was just so refreshing to sit and relax before going UP.
Looking up from the pool. I knew that I had the last leg of my journey to do.
The ascent was not as easy as going into the Gorge. It was more vertical and I was getting tired.
My walking friend Louise is always telling me “ To pick up my Teddy and keep going." I keep hearing her say it as I climbed up. I was delighted to see the top.
On our way home we looked at some of the other Gorge.
Hancock’s Gorge. This is were a brave young man gave his life to save a tourist.
