I am in the southern Flinders Ranges tonight and it has been great getting here. I took the Main North Road out of Adelaide and this is where it takes you. You pass through a lot of lovely little towns on the way too and there is a lot less traffic than the Port Wakefield Road. More info may come if I ever feel like writing it.

I think it had a paint job. Perhaps a 100th birthday present?

This is a town called Melrose at the foot of Mt Remarkable - which actually is quite remarkable. It was the first town in the Flinder's Ranges. We are approximately 400 metres above sea level here

This fella obviously has very good taste in cars! He has approximately 30 Land Rovers.

At Hancocks Lookout. This photo was taken 525 metres above sea level and looks out over the Spencer Gulf. I once again wonder why I've always driven on the Port Wakefield Road every time I've gone from Port Augusta to Adelaide.
