Scott at Emily Gap...
|...checking out the Aboriginal art.|
|Give me a crack. I'll make you a tree.|
|The sand is the bottom of a river. When it rains water rushes through this gap.|

Not far along the road is Jessie Gap.
|Aborigines know these two gaps to be important sources of water in dry times.|
|14:24 June 12th.
The next stop along the ranges is Corroboree Rock. On occasion it is still used for that purpose today.

Crossing a (thankfully) dry river bed, possibly Ross River to enter Trephina Gorge. Judging by these Ghost Gums there is water here somewhere.
|Scott is either about to walk the gorge or be taken up in an alien space craft.|
|The gorge won.|
|With a good boil the water in this stagnant pool could be drinkable.|
|You can walk through the gorge, then walk back along the rim. There are longer walks too if you have the time.|
|The view from the top is worth the climb (which is not too strenuous).|

Back to BD for the trip back to Alice before dark. Roos and cattle are a problem on the road at dusk.
