Finally I managed to get to the Pilbara and actually stay there, not a cyclone to be seen. Tsunamis and earthquakes smashing poor Japan (how awful was that Tsunami footage with cars and trucks swept off the roads? Awful stuff), but the north west is clear at last. A two day job which became a 4 day job was just what I needed, fresh air and huge hills to climb. It really wiped away all the cobwebs. I usually work in the Chichester range, which is quite small compared to the heights of the Hamersley range, so it didn't take long for me to be sweating and huffing and puffing after the first hill. Man I've lost all walking fitness over the break, time to get back into it, seriously! We found some very cool stuff including what looks to be a couple of old burials, can't show any pics of that but I did manage a heap of the spectacular Hamersley range, an amazing place....
