El Questro Station - The Kimberleys 18th - 23rd May 2014

Todays ride into El Questro was a short one - only 110kms.

Our first view of the huge Kimberley range is quite amazing.

Finally made it to the El Questro turn off on the Gibb River road - only 16kms of dirt road to go.

The thing they forgot to mention was the river crossing - 3 of them, The Pentecost was the last and widest.

The Pentecost crossing - only way in and out of El Questro unfortunately

Our first walk was to Telecom tower to get an idea of where we are - great views of the Pentecost River winding its way through the Kimberleys.

Following the walking trail was not quite as easy as we expected - look out for the Yellow marker and follow them. Yellow is the easiest trail to follow.

We went and checked out the crossing to go up the Saddleback lookout - and decided it was too rough to ride across so we will walk that one tomorrow morning before it gets too hot.

Winding down to "Station" time is a bit of a challenge for us after being on the road for 6 weeks and riding almost every day - but I think we will manage.
