Left Temple Bar this morning.Heading to Devils Marbles.Our first stop Aileron [big man walk],Photos will explain.Diesel was 2:05 but no eftpos so we continued on to Ti Tree our lucky day diesel was cheaper $1:98.

The scenery is looking great lots of grasses & trees .Very obvious the amount of rain that has fallen. Starting to see plenty of wild flowers , lovely colours.

Next stop, Wycliffe Well, UFO capital of Australia. We need our alfoil beanies to repel the aliens. We had pie and chips for lunch, so many chips we took a doggie bag be eating chips for a few more meals.

Arrived at our overnight stop at Devils Marbles. Big day today, travelled about 400kms.

The aboriginal word for Devils Marbles is Karlu Karlu. They are a living cultural landscape and the traditional country for Warumga,Kayletye,Alyawarra and Walipiri people.

The marbles are remnants from a solid mass of granite.The bulk still lies beneath them. The boulders create a variety of refuges and sheltered environments where the more sensitive plants live. Occasionally the small blackheaded goanna is seen in the crevices.Zebra and painted finches are often seen in the reserve.

We stayed overnight at the Devils Marbles a great experience.We saw a dingo hanging around the campsite. Unfortunately people had been feeding him and he has become dependant on the campers.
