A Short Walk In The Grampians #9

To my eye it is a rugged, ancient but very beautiful place!

And I agree, Ray! Beautiful!
Ray: I have a feeling you will enjoy our descent next week, Elizabeth!

No doubt sacred to the native people, as these places often are..
Ray: Quite so, Chris...next week you will see some interesting places that have significance to the Real Australians.
Magnifique c'est vrai !
Merci
Ray: C'est l'un de mes endroits préférés, Claudine.
That is exactly what it is Ray
Ray: I am delighted to share this opinion with you, Bill.

My eye says the same as your eye Ray. One thing that struck me, back in 1995, as your picture also shows, is the vast distance that one can survey from up here.
Ray: The horizon is so distant that it is curved, Chad.

It certainly does look as if those rocks weathered a very long time ago, Ray
Ray: It is believed Australia's long Eastern mountain range was once very tall, Lisl, but now the highest peak in the whole continent is a mere 2228 metres above sea level. This image is of a part of the same mountain range, but there is not much left.
Was this the first trip out of Thailand for Na and Mawin, it would certainly be somewhat different to what they have been used to.
Ray: Na and Mawin have been with me to Australia and a couple of other countries, Brian, but this was their first experience of what we call bush-walking in Strahya.
I can only agree with you, Ray.
Ray: I think you will enjoy the route down, Frank...come back next week.
To my eye it is a rugged, ancient but very beautiful place too Ray...
what a magnificent panorama....petersmile
Ray: Thank you, Peter. Australia has many beautiful places.

Higher than anything back at home? I get the impression that your part of Thailand is quite flat.
Ray: Thailand's Doi Inthanon is the highest place in that country, at 2565 metres above sea-level...the highest point in Australia is Mt kosciuszko at 2228 metres...Grampians highest point is 1168 metres...where I am standing for this pic is probably not more than 700 metres.

In Thailand, our house is at about 170 metres, and we are on a huge bench-flat plateau...about 35km South of us is the Donrak Range on the border with Cambodia, and it has some peaks at about 300 metres.
That horizon is a long way away!
Ray: The mountain is not high, Tom, but the surrounding country is very flat.
I love those rock formations...
Ray: It is a lovely place, Larry.
