Centralian Visit 2

Here is my navigator, cook and love of my life beside the Lasseter Highway. We did get some sunshine and clear skies as you can see.
Lake Amadeus to the north and Mt Conner to the south from the Lasseter Highway.

Mt Conner from the west.
The school and houses at Murputja where we were based for three nights. One of the teachers was working away at another school and kindly allowed us the use of his house.
Grasses were in flower everywhere. Some of the spinifex had flower and seed heads over my head.
Red sand dune country with spinifex and Grevillea.
Every River Redgum had a pair of nesting budgerigars and often Galahs, Cockatiels and Australian Ringnecks.
North of the Gunbarrel Highway are the Musgrave Ranges.
