Aussie RT Day 27 – Pinnacles Hide and Seek

Australia, WA Roadtrip — By on November 22, 2010 7:03 PM

Nambung National Park is home to the Pinnacles Desert, where thousands of limestone pillars rise mysteriously over vast yellow sand dunes.

No one knows for certain where they came from and scientist have a few theories of their creation. The Pinnacles are believed to have formed underground, possibly up to 500,000 years ago during the Ice Age. Evidence suggests that they were exposed around 6000 years ago, but were again covered by shifting sands until only a few hundred years ago.

The Pinnacle Desert is near the coastal town of Cervantes, three hours north of Perth. You can get up close to the pinnacles on a scenic drive and walk trail that includes an amazing lookout over the Nambung National Park.

Stacy (aka “the bandit) and I decided it was a great It’s a great place for a game of hide and seek!

Also hiding in the desert was a bobtail skink, galahs, and a python!
