Australia - 2005-04-30 - 4 - Karijini National Park - Circular Pools Walk

After talking to the visitor center we decided to buy a 28 day pass that would allow us go to any park in Western Australia. It cost the same entry would have for about 3 parks so considering we were going to at least that many it seemed like a good deal. The rangers there also give us advice on which sites to go. We wanted to swim & they said that we would be able to go swimming at the circular pools. The walk itself was a great walk, but when we got to the pools we realized we would have to wait until later to find a swimming hole. The walk took us down into the valley. The second to the last picture is the swimming hole. We don't think we missed a turn & the walk ended when we got to that point because there was no more trail. We saw the contour & color of the rock which is what Karijini is know for & what you always remember about it. Also there would be huge fragments of rocks, like the one where I am pictured in front of. Another interesting thing about the park is the staggered rock formations that step up in certain areas. You can also see this at the top of the ranges where they are the smallest & get bigger as you work down. It is the effect of water plus wind, compounded by time. After finishing the circular pools part of the walk we stayed in the valley & headed the other direction to the falls.
