lol....I sure am! ;)

But seriously...flew out into the Outback on one of those twin turbo-prop planes, looked around, for 2 days and flew back to Perth again earlier this evening. It really is red....there's red sand everywhere, with these army green coloured trees/bushes scattered around. Really a breathtaking sight though.

kangaroos...yes! They're freakin' everywhere!!! Koala bears....sadly no. But then again...this is the Outback we're talking about....no bears in the desert.

I didn't take pics on the way out...thought I'd do it on the way back, but there was cloud cover...stupid of me...but at least I got to see it, so that's cool.

Hahaha Wayne!

Oh...speaking of...it pretty much looks like this from the air:

This shot was on the way to the airport...or shall I say runway...as that's all it is really...a runway, a gate and a refuelling rig. Even the runway is a dirt runway compiled of red sand. Anyway, the photo:

And this is a pic from the plane I flew on, a 19-seater Fairchild Metro 23. I almost had to crawl on my knees once inside, it's that small.
