Karlu Karlu (Devils Marbles)

TripToKarluKarluAfter crossing into Northern Territory, we reached the northern most point of our tour, just east of Tennant Creek, and then we turn for home, but stopped to walk around Karla Karla. (Well, poor dog had to stay in the car – he will not see much of the sights of NT alas.)

The walk around the stones is most pleasant, and quite astonishing. There are rocky outcrops all over the NT, but for some reason only here are large, nearly spherical boulders formed.

When you get close, you cannot see how it is happening, but you can see daylight as a new boulder separates from the base rock.

Ash enjoyed the climbing opportunities the boulders offered.

Even Carmel allowed me to take a photo of her.
