We left at eight fifteen to head south towards Halls Creek where we stopped for morning tea before heading out to the Walls of China, a striking rock formation just out of town on the Duncan Road. We came back in to Halls Creek and refuelled and then headed south to Mary’s Pool Rest Area, stopping along the way for lunch. Arrived in camp at one-thirty for an early stop. Quite hot at the moment 34ºC. The last few days have been in the mid to high thirties. We made our plans for tomorrow then everyone sat back for an afternoon siesta.
