My World no 23 - THE FLYING WATER LILY OF WILPENA

Early our last morning at Wilpena Pound it was crispy clear air and a closer look will show you a little frost on the ground,

The weather the days we were at Wilpena Pound was just fantastic.
but it was still a couple of hours before our 1 hour flight.
ARIKA (water lily) is a young woman working at Wilpena Pound Tourist Resort as a pilot. Arika takes tourists on aerial flights from the resort around the pound and on to the surrounding areas. Arika conducts the flights with an informative history of the area and she is a most friendly person and well suited to giving the tourists a great scenic flight.



This must be the most famous view over Wilpena Pound so we also have our own

The north end of the Heysen Trail seen from Parachilna Gorge which means you have the Western Plains to the right. This track is one of the most famous ones in Australia.

Even people of age up here cannot remember seeing this area so green:

And to the left here the "Great wall of China"

This was my little contribution from my world to you this week, don’t miss out on the rest of the world here! mwtblack
