an eerie feeling

standing there by the middle of west australian desert. walking amongst the gigantic limestone pillars. like an archway, a gateway to another world!

are the formations looks like moon's landscape? can be. or is there a huge graveyard with thousand tombstone? probably --even in the fact ... it's not a graveyard in there! it's eerie but breathtaking scenery in front of me.

and i am so glad to be here in the pinnacles. devils' playground. the huge graveyard. the moon's landscape. name it .... just simply beautiful, from dawn to dusk.

my memorable desert visit, after cycling to luxor el mohareb desert in 2005 with moj lyubimij nicholas.

is there a dead-end?

walking and keep on walking. picturing and picturing once more time. companied by flies sometimes and somehow.

wondering about a dead-end in this huge desert. seems there's no end. and becomes more and more interesting, every time i go further afield.

there's 2 beaches and 1 lake to be visited. but for me, the pinnacles steal my heart since the first time i was there!

a day of contrast

leaving busy towns and find the pathway to the heart of the desert. i found this experience is so relaxing and lots of memories. because of the limestone formations, the winds blowing, the mills and tranquility of this place.

some resources telling the pinnacles can be so touristy. but how lucky i was .... just our bus here with 14 people on board. so ... can be enjoyed by my own. cheers, honey :) [the way to say thanks in australian way. i just learn ;) ]
