Karijini

A couple of people I know have been to Karijini National Park recently  which is about 1400 kilometers from Perth and it made me realize that I haven’t posted any of my photos from the trip that I did there last October.

My husband had to go up North for a week for work and it was school holidays so I decided that seeings how he was away and I’d been wanting to go to Karijini  for ages, bugger it I’d go on a road trip. It was a last minute thing that I decided to do a couple of weeks before hand and it just so happened that a great friend of mine was on holidays so I asked her if she wanted to come, she said yes so off we went.

It was a pretty huge trip to do as I had to drive that far, plus I had my two kids in the back of the car together and I’d never been so far away with out my husband but you know what, it was absolutely amazing. Ok so I had to drive the whole way myself bar one hour and set everything up at the camp when we got there after driving so far, plus as it turned out I was getting crook, but there was no stopping me. I was determined to make the most of it.

I knew when I went that I probably wouldn’t be able to do a lot of photography but I didn’t mind because I just wanted to see the place and get an idea of what I could do for the next trip. My husband called it my reconnaissance mission which I thought sounded pretty cool.

It was pretty difficult trying to carry camera gear, plus water and food for the day for myself and the kids but the kids were great and they were able to carry some things which took some of the weight off of me, but it was still a hard slog and it makes you realize that those men of ours certainly do come in handy.

Anyway it was an amazing trip. I think I would be a bit reluctant to go without my hubby again, but hey I did it and certainly would never regret it and the kids and I had the most amazing adventure so what more can you ask for. I even managed to take a few shots that I think turned out pretty good.

Here’s one of the photos that I got in Dales Gorge, my favourite place up there so far. This was just a tiny part of  a really great spot in the gorge that had all of these little waterfalls. Hope you like it.

      Thanks, yes that would be awesome wouldn’t it? You’ll just have to save up and get a bigger camera.
