We headed around to the eastern side of the Bungle Bungles and did the Cathedral Chasm and Picaninny Creek walks. Adrian played didge in the chasm which was the only appropriate place for it and it sounded really spectacular.
The walk was quite long and very hot in the midday sun but well worth it. My ankles are really sore from walking on the round rocks in dry river beds.
After lunch, some of us went on the ½ hour helicopter flight over the ranges. The helicopters hold 3 people plus the pilot and don't have any doors. GEM sat in the back with the BOSS and it took quite a bit of persuasion to get her in. It was an exhilarating and scary flight with the most magnificent views of the Bungle Bungles domes and gorges.
In the afternoon we headed up to Echidna Gorge which is a great little walk getting narrower and narrower until it's just 1 metre wide in places. Back at camp we had a fairly lazy evening with burritos for dinner and a didge playing 'competition' round the campfire. (sigh)
