Stacked Up

SquareUp Photo Challenge: Camping at Carnarvon Gorge, October 2020 #21

All along its course through the gorge, Carnarvon Creek is strewn with waterworn stones of all shapes and sizes.

Some have been repositioned as stepping stones, linking the walking track from one side to the other.

With such an abundance, we were surprised to see just one set of travellers’ stones stacked up beside the creek.

Up High, Looking Out

After the long walk up through Wagaroo Gorge the bench at the lookout on Boolimba Bluff provided welcome respite. But I didn’t stay seated for long. 

The views from this vantage point, 200 metres above the base of the gorge, are simply spectacular.

On The Way Up

The steep climb up 300 steps to Boolimba Bluff passes through Wagaroo Gorge. The sandstone walls are weathered and craggy, formed by thousands of years of erosion by wind and water.

About half way up a shallow cave catches our attention. The brilliant white stone glows in stark contrast with the darker stone surrounding it, and we feel awed by the beauty of nature’s carvings.

The Only Way is Up

With 300 steps and several ladders over a distance of just 300 metres, it’s lucky there are some resting places on the final climb up to Boolimba Bluff.

What’s Up There?

The lookout at Boolimba Bluff is somewhere up there. To see the amazing views from the lookout, we’ll have to walk 3.2km and climb up 900 steps.

Uprising!

These locals have decided the directions don’t apply to them.

Uprooted

Trees in the bush don’t go to waste when they come down in a storm.

They might create a natural bridge over a waterway.

They often play host to other plants or provide a home for small creatures.

They might also become part of nature’s highway!

Holed Up

While the raindrops clinging to the she-oaks last for just a couple of hours, rainwater pooled in rocky divots stays longer. The reflections in the puddles seem like alternate worlds in miniature.

Brightening up the Bush

In springtime the native hibiscus are in full bloom. As well as the vivid yellows, these delicate flowers come in pastel pinks.
