The Flinders Ranges South Australia
These Three Sentinels guard the entrance to Wilpena Pound from Bridle Gap. The Flinders Ranges in South Australia is one of those places that all Australians must visit. The morning I left Wilpena Pound camping ground I walked across the actual Pound to Bridle Gap some eight or so km away to capture this beautiful view with the plants in the foreground. The view from the top of the gap is quite amazing though the rocky walk up from the Pound is not an easy one.
Wilpena Pound is an amazing place basically it looks like a huge meteor has crashed in to the land crating this natural Pound which was originally used as a cattle station last century prior to it becoming a National Park. Bridle Gap where this photograph was taken has its origins of name from horsemen because only an experienced horseman could ride this way in to Wilpena Pound. As some one who can ride there is no way I would want to challenge my self and try this ride, just to steep and rocky.
If you get the time I would recommend you take the hike to St Mary’s peak, the view from the top is stunning and gives you a great perspective on the topography of this location.
