Today we left the long, straight, flat bitumen road and climbed into the mountains. Yes. There are mountains now and we are happy to be in them – the Flinders Ranges.

We climbed on the dirt road through the fields of bright green grass full of white and purple flowers with rocky peaks standing majestically on either side. It was then time for an extended lunch in the beautiful outback town of Blinman – the highest town in South Australia – about 600m. We then turned off into the Flinders Ranges proper on the small dirt biking track – the Mawson Trail. It is totally beautiful and amazing, and we are happy to be off the beaten track again.
