Standley Chasm, Northern Territory

Almost 3,000 kms from home, Standley Chasm was another of the wonderful destinations visited recently.

It's not easy choosing which photos to share here, being mindful of offering too much information, or 'overload'.  Though, I still want to impart the real feeling or essence of the location too.  Hope you can enjoy this virtual walk with me. Shame you missed out though, on the hot cuppa and cherry slice with chocolate layered top, before the group started out.

let's step through here...

 looking up for a moment,(again), at those awesome Ghost Gums thriving as they do, on the ridge tops

and the hillside, dotted with Cycads





over this...looking like 'steps' on the right, let's take those...

Danger - do not pass this point

Hi Carole.
This is a nice walk, I have also walked virtually.
What a beautiful rock formation and the gap between the rocks is really great.
Best regards, Irma
