Friday 22.04.11 Attack Creek - Devil's Marbles - Alice Springs

Friday morning gave us a beautiful sunrise, and without rushing we were away at about 9am. We were delayed somewhat by the mother of all spiders sitting in wait to get inside the car - it didn't (as far as we know), but after a bit of a chase we never did find out where it went to.

Another fuel stop at Tennant Creek, then lunch at the Devil's Marbles where a few people had already called it a day. We took a few shots of the rocks - they are not as spectacular in the midday sun as they are at sunrise or sunset, but still they are pretty impressive.

From there it was all the way to Alice Springs, stopping briefly to stretch the legs. We were slightly bemused by one of the GPS's wanting to send us to Alice Springs via Ali Kurang, and then the Plenty Highway, not getting us in to Alice Springs until at least after 11pm! We ignored that one, and the other GPS was pretty accurate, getting us into the Heritage Caravan Park at about 5.30pm.

The Caravan park was surprisingly not fully booked, and we got 4 sites to ourselves. It was quiet, and the amenities were very good too, and pet friendly as well. We had a fennel, chestnut and truffle oil risotto for dinner (as you do), hot showers, and an overnight temperature inside the tent of 8 degrees.
