09-Jun-2008 -- Continued from 30S-135E

After a long and wet drive yesterday from Coober Pedy, it was great to head north and have fine and warm weather as we entered the Northern Territory. With a great bush camp on the Mulga Park Road and only 5 Kilometres from our next confluence, we packed up our camp and made our way to this confluence.

At 3 kilometres from the confluence, it was time to leave the road and make our way cross country towards the confluence. Using good topographical maps, we found the fence that stopped Joachim Krebs and Ulrich Leardi in August 2005. Running alongside this fence, was a good cleared track, and our map showed that we could get very close to the confluence if we followed the fence line further. At 600 metres from the confluence, we left our vehicles and followed the fence line north to within 60 metres of the confluence. As we walked towards the confluence, we were looking for the timber tripod that Joachim and Ulrich had erected at the confluence.

Approaching the confluence, we located the tripod, but it had fallen over, possibly cattle may have knocked it over. The large tree in the background of photos taken at the confluence is a Corkwood tree - Hakea lorea which was in flower. With photos in hand, we walked back to our waiting vehicles and headed further west to log another confluence for the day.
