Posting #4 of my road trip from Fremantle to Kununurra, Western Australia.

During my recent >9,000 km road trip highway vistas like this one routinely had me in awe of the scenic beauty of this wonderful land.

Oh, how I enjoy the tranquillity of a sleepy river and the Australian bush. This is the De Grey River and rail bridge just off the Great Northern Highway near Port Headland, Western Australia. I didn’t camp here but I did enjoy the respite as I stretched my legs during the long drive.

Travelling is full of surprises…

The ubiquitous road train: some transport livestock, some transport supplies, and for others, like this one, it is iron ore.
