From Wyndham we had to drive back to get finally to the “entrance” of the GIBB RIVER ROAD. Now that brought memories back from a year ago. I remembered how excited I was when I saw the sign and we stopped to take a picture of it ….. Well, this time it was the same. We stopped to take some pictures and off we went! How I love this street!! Corrugated road nearly all the way through!! “Nearly impossible to drink while the car is moving unless you do not mind having the drink all over you!!” I wondered if we would get through without a flat tyre!

First stop was at El Questro Station. That is we had our first flat tyre followed by another one the next day! Oh..oh not a good start!

We went to some wonderful gorges, had to climb over some big rocks and up and down the walls, that was when I found out that I was more afraid of heights than I though I would be. So pretty soon I found myself in the back of the group and in the end I was all by myself. I did not like that so much but at least I was able to take my time without anyone behind me rushing me! I was enjoying myself and the environment around me, lucky that I did not come across a snake or so….

Finally I got to the “waterfall” where the rest of the group was getting ready for a swim. We went to several Gorges and they were all gorgeous!!
