MacDonnell Range


This is the original Alice Spring (that isn't really a spring) in the Todd River near the old Telegraph Station. The following are all rocky places in the MacDonnell Ranges east and west of Alice Springs. Imagine the forces involved in moving vast sheets and layers of rock from a horizontal position to near vertical and then the wearing down in the millions of years since. Fascinating. And every one of these places is still culturally significant to the local indigenous communities.
