This was a great example photo of what it's like for about forty percent of
the journey. I actually love hopping out of the truck and going for a wander
amongst this open land - god... I love a sunburnt country, a land of
sweeping plains.....

Ghost Gums

(viewed 823 times)
In Western Australia you will find many differing types of gums so hardy it
would make you weep. These fellas survive droughts, bushfires, poisoning,
freezing and freaky wind storms. I think they are just tops. At night they
glow in the headlights of the truck as you haul down through the Tallawana
Track. No wonder they are called ghost gums. A bit like when Aboriginals
first took sight of Anglo Celts walking their land - ghosts.

dunes area and is the roughest part of the journey - bone shattering
