A very big bath...A very big bath...A very big bath...

It was so strange to get into the water and it being so lovely and hot...
We went through the famous dog fence which is a very long fence indeed. 9700km, keeping out all the Dingos from the sheep land. We were now aiming for our little oasis in the desert...Dalhousie Springs. Scott our tour guide told us that the spring wasn't very big, but he lied...for the good that is, as it was a great suprise to see this massive hot spring where we were camping. I couldn't believe how warm the water was, it got too hot for everyone in fact! The only down side to this beautiful place was the mosquitos...I used my 50% DEET spray but still got lots of bites, especially on my feet...

I loved the feeling so much of just having miles and miles (or kilometres over here) of just nothing except beautiful land...
The young ones...The young ones...
The young ones...

Us three were the only ones under 20...and already experiencing being in the middle of the desert...
