The Flinders Ranges

Once again the weather seemed like it was going to dampen our hiking aspirations. Mostly cloudy, mostly sunny, showers developing. We wanted to climb St Marys Peak, the highest point in the Flinders Ranges, so decided that would be done on the ‘mostly sunny’ day. A drive and a lesser walk to Red Hill Lookout would have to suffice for the mostly cloudy day. As the day progressed, though, the cloud lessened, and it turned into a great day for looking out over the Heysen Range.

The afternoon sun brought out some amazing colours on the way home.

The mostly sunny day was sunny. Very sunny. We did a loop walk with a long slow up and a very, very steep down. The views were amazing and we’re still sore!

Showers developing turned into mostly sunny, but we were in no state for any serious walking after our climb the previous day, so we went for a drive back to a couple of lookouts, and wandered along a creek bed for a couple of kilometres.
