Perentie dreaming site

On the way to Trephina Gorge, we passed a significant site of the Perentie Dreaming. The rock narrow rock is very impressive, it reminded me a lot of the rock formations in the Warrumbungle NP in NSW. There is a short trail around the rock and there is not much else to see. Definitely worth the stop on the way along the East MacDonnell ranges. Picture gallery

Trephina Gorge

Trephina Gorge is located in the East MacDonnell Ranges. There is a campsite close to the gorge and a walking trail that takes you around the gorge in roughly 90 minutes. The red cliffs on either side of the gorge are very impressive as well as the views into the country. The camp site was completely empty, the only sign of action was the posted weather forecast (next days all in the forties..). We had a good time though – we arrived in the afternoon and went on the trail just before sunset. Another good thing along the way is

Lower Antelope Canyon

On the next day, we went on the first tour of the day down into the Lower Antelope Canyon. The accessible part of the Lower Canyon is much longer than the Upper one, it takes about 90 minutes for the whole tour (one way, no backtracking).

After seeing both parts, I would recommend visiting both parts if you have the time. It is hard to say which one is more beautiful,

Las Vegas

After a short detour to Los Angeles to pick up my camera that I forgot in my friend’s car the night before, we were on our way to Las Vegas. The drive was smooth and took about 4 hours. We arrived in the afternoon and had enough time to go up the Stratosphere tower for the sunset. The views are nice from up there, and it is impressive that they put a small amusement park with a couple of rides up there. At night time, we went for a walk on the Strip. We did not get far though, since

Roadtrip in America’s Southwest

After a couple of days in Lake Forest, we started the road trip through America’s southwest. We only had about 4 days and booked all nights before, so the schedule was pretty much set. On the first day, we drove to Las Vegas, then to the Zion NP, to Page for the Antelope Canyon and the Horseshoe Bend, and finally to the Grand Canyon. Part of the fun was trying out new fast food chains and eating out at good Mexican diners, which are still rare to find in Berlin. The veggie version of the In & Out Burger (no
