Welcome to "Simpsons Gap". Thank God there were people around otherwise I'm pretty sure Tom would have happily had his photo taken of him stood alongside a "Simpsons Gap" sign revealing himself enough to reveal two Simpson's Gaps in the photo. To which I told him there would be no point anyhow cause I certainly wasn't going to scare everyone off by broadcasting it on the blog.
I'll give him credit where credit is due though, "Simpsons Gap" is definitely the best gap I've seen so far.
We were headed East from Alice Springs, once again along the MacDonnell Ranges - just on the other side this time. We were wanting to explore the Gorges and the waterholes a little bit more and then eventually make our way down to Uluru via Kings Canyon and Gosses Bluff. We were about to do a lot of appreciating nature (which inevitably means a whole heap of walking!) We had to get the energy levels up cause we had a decent amount of sunrises & elevated lookouts to reach over the next few days. That'll boost the fitness & health regime (and make up for our few little lapses here and there! :)
