Good Morning All

Monday Morning here again

Does anyone know where this pic was taken & what the place is called ?

Don't think this one is too hard......

Cheers

Paul

One of the Paine and Barkley survey markers Paul? It's not the one near Windaldarra Rockhome but I presume it's along the 1931 expedition route.

Hi Mick

No, It's not the one near Windaldarra Rockhome But I didn't know it was one of the Paine and Barkley survey markers........ Learn something every day !

This particular one is further west....

Well it might be time for a clue...

There is something in the background of the picture I was sure would give it away

& the location is further west of where Mick O thought.....

Cheers

Hi Jim

Just had a look, can't see what you mean...

If there is that's not the feature in the background I'm talking about as a clue..

Just had a closer look, do you mean the rock that looks like a wombat on it's back with it's front claws extended ? Or is that just my imagination now ? LOL

Cheers

OK, is that a rustic cross on the right? Still doesn’t help me, but perhaps another clue.
By the way, there’s another animal head up higher !!
Must be seeing things.??

Yes, you are seeing things now ! lol

Yes the cross should be a clue to someone, or am I the only one to have stopped at this place ?

Here's another clue ....... It's in WA. Between a couple of big deserts

Sign at the Location


Stop no;7 on the map


Beegull Waterholes were named by the Paine and Barclay Expedition in 1931 using the Aboriginal name.

Congrats Equinox!

Your Welcome, It's just a bit of fun... I actually look forward to Pick This Place although it hasn't really taken off.

I'm the last person that should be correcting someone..... I'll check my posts 3 times & still have to go back & edit again....Ha !

Cheers

Paul.

Paul,

I also like Pick This Place. Although I have travelled quite extensively through the outback, there are many places that I have not been to, and this segment drives me to keep exploring.
