There were a few moments riding through remote South Australia that I had to remind myself that I wasn't in the American Southwest. The sight of a kangaroo or emu bounding was enough to remind me where I was.
Our first sight of Wilpena Pound came at the end of the second longest day of the ride. We camped at Rawnsley Park, in the shadow of Wilpena Pound.
The interior of Wilpena Pound was a short ride from Rawnsley Park. Throughout the area are many reminders of the traditional owners of the area, the Adnyamathanha aboriginals. This sculpture is part of a historic site highlighting early European attempts to settle the area.
