Shoulder to Shoulder - Day five
It’s day five and we have passed through some amazing country over the past few days. The beautiful green pasture from the recent rain is just so vibrant and colourful. We are seeing lots of wildlife along the way including goannas, birds and echidnas.
Walking on day two
The first day of Shoulder to Shoulder was really good. Apart from the fact that we had to make some changes due to the recent rainfall, and an area that we were going to go through was submerged in water, it’s been great!
