Today was going to be a day of driving up to Karijini National Park, although the day started on a downer as we lost the Norwegian girls from our group as one of them had a badly infected foot and needed to remain at Exmouth hospital for treatment.

Along the way we stopped in Tom Price for groceries and alcohol (to help us sleep!). Interestingly the town is named after a wealthy mining company; so clearly you can buy anything if you have enough money!

The drive into the park was picturesque with Mount Bruce a particularly prominent feature being the biggest in west Australia.

After turning off the asphalt and driving along dirt tracks for a while we were at our camp for the next few days. As there was another western xposure tour group following the same itinerary to Broome, we shared the camp with the them and it was soon time to tuck into the mammoth stir fry Neil (the other tour guide) cooked on the barbecue.
