Well I'd like to give that person a big round of applause, as 64 years on the Heysen trail is a true wonder of nature.
The Heysen trail - named after a German born, Australian bush watercolour artist Sir Hans Heysen - begins at Cape Jervis and ends in the north of the Flinders Ranges.
Over the 1200kms of this trail, the countryside ranges from the rugged cliffs and beaches of the south, right up through the city of Adelaide, the winery regions of the Barossa Valley and the desolate outback of the Flinders Ranges.
Something to see right!
So we did.
We explored a whole 8kms (pshaw - only 1192kms left to go!!!!!) of it the other weekend and were completely blown away by it all.
It was supposed to be a cold, rainy, windy day, but we started out in sunshine (albeit chilly) and blue skies.
The scenery was spectacular and the walking track varied from bridges.....
to meandering along the clifftops.....
through paddocks full of sheep and cows.......
led us to a "Land Before Time valley" according to Harri.
The afternoon was drifting away, and as we half-heartedly agreed to turn around and go home, a pod of playful dolphins enticed us to stay that little bit longer.
The clouds began to roll in and the sky darkened and splattered us with a misty rain, producing one of the most beautiful rainbows I've ever seen....
Woohoo - what a great day!!
