Day trip to Emma Gorge
22.05.2014 - 22.05.2014
Emma Gorge is part of the El Questro Station but quite a long way from where we are so we decided to get a transfer by 4WD over there.
Emma Gorge walk is quite challenging - Blue markers this time - meaning "difficult". Quite an understatement unless you are a mountain goat !!
The start of the walk is quite easy - deceptive !!!
The gorge is quite spectacular and worth the walk/climb in.
Arriving at the Gorge is amazing - and you can swim.
After 1hr of hot-sweaty-climbing-scrambling we couldn't wait to get in and cool off.
But of course the only way to get back is the same way we came in - follow the Blue marker - if you can see it !
Another swim to cool off in Emma Station pool, followed by a delicious lunch, then relaxing by the pool until our ride arrived.
There is a well known story that the Boab Tree retains water which is drinkable - here is the proof !
(I wonder how many tourists go home with photos of this amazing tree)
