Stopped in Atherton on the way to do a small shop and a new phone for me.(An old farts phone with big numbers and nice and loud) Then on to Mareeba, having a coffee break in a park on the north side. We made our way to the Ringers Rest bush camp about 6km out of Mareeba for the night.

Made a nice walk for us that evening and again the next morning.While down at the creek the dogs checked out this huge Ant nest. The country side is very dry compared to the Tablelands at Ravenshoe, a lot of dust and brown grass, a vast difference in a short distance.
|Hotel at Mount Molloy|
Refuelled in Mareeba and headed along the Mulligan highway past the Mount Molloy Hotel.
Resting at Rifle Creek. We were here over 2 years ago on our first venture out and spent a couple of nights then, but not staying today, making our way to Mt Carbine.

I found this little orchid while out walking with the dogs on the morning of our departure this morning.

To continue - we travelled the 100km to James Earl lookout and may spend the night here. Once again, a great view.

All is well for the month of August. Plan to make Cooktown in the next few days. Catch you in September - wherever we may be!
