the roads to el questro are very corragted and is subject to flooding regularly, creating a multitude of fords and floodways. some of these are only a few inches deep others are a few feet. we were able to get through a couple of them with a campervan and station wagon, but a four wheel drive is necessary if you want to do them all. we couldnt make it to el questro  and moonlight. so we have to camp on one side of a ford and walk across then walk another three kilometers until we get to the gorge. it has made a long couple of days.

moonlight is located right next to el questro gorge and is a complete waste of time. it follows a very rocky riverbed. you spend so much time staring at your feet and the rocks that when you look up your eyes have a hard time adjusting to looking at things far away, you go a bit cross eyed. you dont have any time to look around unless you stop . the only good thing was the view from a beautiful vista near the end. after the shitty walk we hit the springs again.

we have made it to kununurra, the first place to feel like an actual town/city. we were parked at a gas station, cooking dinner and using the showers, when a local came over and invited us to sleep at his place for the night and instead of drive forty kilometers outside of town.
