A Short Walk into the Outback

More than snorkeling the Great Barrier Reef, more than walking through rain forests, more than driving the Great Ocean Road, more than seeing exotic plants and animals and the great sights of Sydney, walking in the Australian Outback thrilled me to the core.  Memories of it still make my heart go pitty-pat.  What should have been a three-minute walk took me an hour and even then I felt rushed.  We were incredibly fortunate to visit the Australian Outback in the rain and see the desert exude life in this short, temporary condition.  It seemed the desert was in a state of euphoria—contagious euphoria. The trip nearly half-way around the world was worth it for that one hour walking through the Outback.

By the way, there's a new feature here I think you'll like; if you click on an image you should get a window with the series of photos enlarged.  It works on old posts, too.  Please try it.
