This morning, we bade farewell to our huge van site with the beautiful tropical tree and took to the Capricorn Highway heading west. Out here, the economy is booming, with huge oversize vehicles, coal trains and grain silos.
It wasn’t till around 4.00pm that we arrived here at Springsure, to a pretty free camp at the base of Virgin Rock. It is on a stock route,where stock have for a century been transported to market along wide tracts of land. An evening walk revealed a full moon and the rock lit up to reveal a virgin and child, which I tried unsuccessfully to photograph.
