Bungle Bungles

 We weren't planning to go back to the Bungle Bungles on this trip, but when Chris realised it was another long weekend for Anzac Day he suggested we go camping at the Bungles.  It's only a four hour drive into the Bungles from Kununurra and even the drive there is beautiful!  We were really glad we went.  This is one special place!
 We are loving being here early in the dry season!  None of this water was around last time we were in here and it really made for spectacular scenery!!

 We really enjoyed a couple of nights away from the caravan.  Sleeping in a tent definitely makes you appreciate the caravan more too!  Here the girls are making breakie....bacon and egg muffins.
 The beautiful scenery on the way into Echidna Chasm.  I love the contrast of the red rocks, green trees and blue sky.

 Just walking into Echidna Chasm.  You can see just how small we are next to the tall chasm.
 We timed our walk into the chasm so we would be here when the sun was overhead.  In this photo, the sun is just coming down through the chasm.  An amazing sight!!

 We were amazed at just how green it was in here.  Usually the spinifex is all yellow and dry, but this time they were spiky balls of lush green.
 The girls enjoying the view up at the sunset lookout.  It had been a big day with plenty of walks and hot weather.  It was nice just to sit, relax and enjoy God's creation!

 We even enjoyed a swim in here.  Pretty special having a dip to cool off with the Bungle Bungles as a backdrop!! WOW!!!  And there was hardly anyone around.  I had to set up the self timer to take this family photo as there was no one around.

 The girls may look like they're just casually playing near the water, but in fact that are killing cane toad tadpoles!!  We were amazed just how many of them were around.  They are a huge problem up here and are starting to invade.  They even had toad catching as an activity in the campground each evening.  They're catching around a thousand a night and you can't tell the difference!
