Can't help but be excited about water

Another blog entry about water near Arkaroola to add to the one from last week.

It really is very encouraging to see good rains after so long without. Exciting personally because we will be walking through here in April, so we'll be able to drink, and the land will look fantastic after six months of rain, but excited too for the land itself.

This guy's blog @ really is a good read, fab photos.

There's been a bit of scattered rain around lately that has brought mixed fortunes over a lot of South Australia's Outback. Some were good falls - other places almost missed out.

This section of the Arkaroola Creek down from Barrarina Gorge is accessible by foot but like many other places, vehicle access is not an option.
... all the waterholes of the creek are full once again - well worth visiting in the coming months.

I came across your blog quite by accident but remembered your comments on mine. Thanks for the credits.
It's nice to put a face to people who take the trouble to comment.
I have spent an interesting hour reading about your travels.
Cheers Peter
