Wafers

The last photo from the gorge for now shows the wonderful layers of sediment and the very clear definition between each.  Tomorrow it’s on to the ocean around Kalbarri!

Strata 2

A broad cross section of Tumblagooda Sandstone can be seen in this image of part of a wall of the Murchison gorge.  The river, responsible for carving the gorge, can be seen in the very bottom of the image.  Over 500 million years old, the sandstone is thought to contain some of the earliest fossilised tracks of terrestrial creatures in the world.

Murchison River

The Murchison River flows for some 650 kilometres before plunging through layers of deposited sandstone to form the Murchison Gorge, part of the Kalbarri National Park.  I’ve just spent the weekend there for the first time and I have to say it’s one of the most impresive natural parts of this country I’ve seen.  I’ll be posting quite a few photos from this region over the next few weeks and intend to return there in a month or two to explore again, in the midst of the wildflower season.

Rushed

Apologies for the unscheduled break in play; I spent the lion’s roar of my weekend rebuilding my PC, which perhaps dragged out a little longer than I realised it would.  But, I’m back with a fresh install and a new batch of photos taken today, chasing waterfalls that are feverishly cascading down the Darling Scarp, flushed with winter rains.  More of those, in the coming days!
