Flinders Ranges

I went on a trip to the Flinders Ranges. The Flinders Ranges is the largest mountain range in South Australia, which starts approximately 200 km north west of Adelaide. Its most characteristic landmark is Wilpena Pound, a large, sickle-shaped, natural amphitheatre covering nearly 80 square kilometers, containing the range's highest peak, St Mary Peak (1170m), and adjoining the Flinders Ranges National Park. I was deeply impressed by the rugged mountain ranges, spectacular gorges, sheltered creeks lined with River Red Gums and abundant wildlife. The area is world-renowned for its geological history, Aboriginal rock art sites, impressive fossil remains and its ruins of early European settlement. The area is astonishing beautiful and it is difficult to get the notion that it was formed 550 million years ago.
My pictures will give you an impression of my journey.
