Magnifiques paysages.

What did Mawin think about this wonderful "stroll"?
Ray: Mawin and Na both enjoyed themselves immensely...way out of their comfort zone, and in an Alien scape,

I am intrigued by the redness of some of those rocks, perhaps it is some sort of ochre?
Ray: As Peter pointed out previously, Chris, the red colour is an indication that the rock is rich in iron oxide. This is the dominant colour of much of inland Australia, which has most of the World's deposits of iron ore.

There are cities on Australia's West Coast, and enormously long private railways snaking their way into inland Australia, that exist purely to move this iron ore from Australia to China.

Ochre powder is used extensively by Australia's Aborigines to decorate themselves and to create Art...it is basically finely powdered ion oxide.

There are so many different colours of the cliffs.
Ray: The sandstone here is very colourful and attractive, Philine.
La couleur de ces roches est vraiment extraordinaire
J'ai hate de continuer cette sortie
Bonne journée Ray
Ray: La semaine prochaine, je vais continuer la série en vous montrant quelques autres choses d'intérêt de la promenade, Claudine.

It's a relief that you all survived all the things that cause misery and death in Australia.

In you reply to Chris, it would be an extremely long railway to take iron ore from Australia to China; it must be a very long bridge.
Ray: I had a 50 year apprenticeship in surviving Australian killing machines, Alan...learned quite a bit and , as with riding a bike, one never forgets how...

That bridge is rather more like a conveyor belt on floating pontoons. smile
Car Park....now you are getting to something I can relate to
Ray: You have to put up with another week of strolling before we are back to the car, Bill...and, no bacon-flavoured comestibles being sold along the route!

Where have all the people gone? Behind you!
Ray: Cripes! They probably went on ahead, as I was pre-occupied with pointing the camera at stuff.

I like this series, maybe because it reminds me of places I ran around as a boy.
Ray: Thank you, Louis. Sometimes reminders of youth activities can be a good thing.
I hope you are going to show fossils. I can imagine some here. I carried home a few AU fossils.
Ray: Perhaps not fossils, Mary, but certainly living but ancient relics.
I've really enjoyed this 'stroll' with you and your family, I never knew Australia was like this in parts.
Ray: I am delighted you enjoyed it.

Australia is vast, Brian, and has many astonishingly beautiful regions. Next year I might do a series featuring a different part of Australia.

Next week I will finish off the series by showing so things I find interesting...things we came across on the stroll back to the car.
i like the view of the craggy faces of the overhang, Ray.
Ray: Craggy is a good descriptor, Ayush.
A gorgeous landscape...
Ray: I think that way, too, Larry.
