Australia - 2005-04-30 - 5 - Karijini National Park - Fortescue Falls Walk (Page 2)

After being denied in our quest for a swimming hole at circular pools we headed toward the Fortescue Falls. The third picture of the first page shows the effects of the water bleaching the rocks it runs over during rains. When you are higher up you look out over the valley & would not expect to see much green, but when you get down by the river you see grasses & shrubs & it evens looks subtropical at points. The walk to the falls is not really drawn out for you. We just really went where other people went, sometimes crossing the stream, sometimes back tracking when we got stuck. It is a walk where you need to take your shoes off at points of get wet feet. But it was a really beautiful walk. The first view you get of the picturesque falls is during the last third of the second page. Like a lot of the falls in the Kimberly they were stepped which makes for beautiful pictures. We were able to achieve our swimming objective as there was a decent sized area at the base of the falls. It was quite slippery to get into this area but it worked well. We did not find much of a place to cliff jump because it was not deep enough. We did walk in the falls & even found a place to have a waterfall massage which was great. After the break we got dried off & headed up the steep walk out of the valley. The last few pictures of the third page show the view back down into the valley from the climb.
