Climbing out of Tunnel Creek

Before too long we had completed the 750 metre walk through the tunnel and
it was time to climb out way out again. It is certainly a matter of
scrambling and squeezing your way through the best you can.

We had made it, even though Jocelyn and I thought initially we would have to
wait for Greg and Peter to complete the walk without us. It was a fantastic
visit and great fun. Tunnel Creek is certainly one of the top things we
have done during our travels.

It was now nearly 4.30 p.m. so we had time for a coffee and a snack and then
commenced the return trip to Derby. The sun was getting low in the sky and
it made it really difficult to see through the dust when another vehicle was
in front of us or coming towards us.

The sunset was again pretty amazing with the orange against the desert
trees. It has to be seen to understand.

Roos are always a hazard of driving at dusk and we were on the watch out all
the way back to Derby. It was a great day out and we really enjoyed sharing
it with Greg and Jocelyn.
