The River

After pumping the tyres back up we hit the blacktop and motored north. We have been to Kalbarri several times and it's a great place. A quick lunch stop at Blue Holes saw us aiming east towards Murchison 4x4 park. It was 52 km down a great dirt road and a hundred meters of rough stuff till we arrived at the homestead. Bev gave us the lowdown on where to camp and the tracks in the area.
We meandered along the river and found our spot at Eagles Bay.
Our campsite was next to the river and had some flat spots to camp on. Enjoying one of lifes little joys, a campfire was lit and we enjoyed a dinner of wood fired pizza cooked on the Biji Barbi.
A beautiful sunrise greeted us as we prepared for a day of hard tracks.
Our first challenge was called Dingos track and started easily enough. But before long massive drops and big climbs put a halt to our forwards movement. We retreated to try another road and found more competition tracks.
Most of the tracks we looked at were either to hard or the chance of breaking something was too high this early in the trip. We found an easier run alongside the river, which was appropriately called River Road. We followed this for a good way along the banks, weaving in and out of the river gums. A soft sandy section led us to the water crossing. At a foot deep it did not provide much of a challenge. It was a nice spot to stop for a beer and the traditional Jaks and Stikki photo shoot.
The return road had a few climbs to keep our attention and before long we had beers in hand at the homestead pub.
