20 August 2009

Flinders Ranges, South Australia

Incomplete post

This was a YHA bushwalking trip and I was one of the seven participants.  The trip was organised by a long-term bushwalking volunteer leader, Stephen Smith, and below is his notes for the entire trip, which had been provided to the participants before the journey.  

Photographs, that are added to the trip notes, were taken on the trip.  Great work, Steve.  I enjoyed the trip and the company of other participants, and thank you for your amazing hard work.
