Boy did we bungle that

We unhook Priscilla at the Bungle Bungles Caravan Park (Mabel Downs Station) and take off down the track to the Purnululu National Park. Fifty three kilometres of bone jarring corrugations, twists, turns and blind rises. Not to mention the five or six creek crossings although I do notice Woody grinning like a Cheshire Cat with those. When we finally get to the ranger station we learn that there is another 60km return journey just to reach Cathedral Gorge. Deciding to err in favour of caution we choose to visit the nearby lookout before skedaddling back to camp. The view is absolutely incredible. We stand on a small knoll with an enormous range in front of us, the domes in the distance. It just screams ‘Outback Australia’.
It costs us about $800 in front end repair when we get home. The bus tour would have been cheaper.
