Monarch Mine

Do you see that small black shadow in the centre of the photograph? Imagine a very small open cut mine. The shadow is at the rear of the pit. That’s the Monarch Mine in the Vulkathunha-Gammon Ranges National Park, South Australia.

The mine was worked in the 1890’s when copper ore was extracted.

Arkaroola landscape

We recently spent a week bushwalking in and around Arkaroola Wilderness Sanctuary, South Australia. It’s beautiful arid desert country – this image is of the Arkaroola landscape near near Coulthard’s Lookout.
