A drive in the country.

I mentioned yesterday that I visited a fellow blogger. What I didn’t say, was that where she lives makes my place look like downtown LA! I have privacy, she has isolation, lots of bumpy, winding, treacherous dirt roads with very little indication as to whether you’re going the right way.

Beautiful country though, and I got to meet a couple of bikers (in fact I even had a beer with them) when I stopped at their club house in the middle of nowhere to ask for directions. I did have directions from my blog buddy, but we won’t got into that.

I took a few pictures of the trip, and here’s the kicker, I’m going to give a prize to the first person who correctly identifies the subject of the second and third pictures (that is, anyone except Caroline)

The last signs of civilisation before we hit the dirt track….

Identify is this mystery object…

Here’s a closer look…

This time you really need to work for your prize, in the past I’ve had the answer before the ink dried on the post. If you don’t want a prize then they’re pretty pictures anyway, and no-one says you have to try to guess the answer. I’m fairly certain it won’t be a simple google exercise this time. But I’ll tell you what, I’ll offer a consolation prize to anyone who can tell me where my footie team came from originally.

  1. Yes, great photos. Well done. Like I said eventually you will get to the Big Flat. There are seven grids, I counted them this arvo. That’ll make it easier for the next visitor, (due in a few years time). Sorry ’bout that, there can be no accounting for another’s doubt.

    That’s a tough quiz btw. London to a brick nobody will get it without some kind of clues. I shall stay tuned–agog with anticipation.

  2. Dear willowtree. It’s not thunderbolt’s rock, as that’s too far north for you to nip out to for a quick visit, and there’s lots of rocks that make up Thunderbolt’s rock, not a single plug. Is it Wallabadah Rock? That’s off the New England highway, and I figure that’s where the dirt track started… Where did your footy team come from? I’ll hazard a guess and say you’re talking about the Swannies, in which case they were from South Melbourne… weren’t they?!

  3. No clue what the answers are, but they are beautiful pictures. Looks like a nice drive and a pleasant way to spend the day.

  4. Ummmmm! Is it a really big termite nest? I think it is!

  5. Chances are the lovely Little Miss Moi has answered the question or questions correctly. Being from Australia, she may have the inside track but maybe not.

    They are lovely pictures.

  6. Killer termites at that!

  7. Is it animal, vegetable or mineral?

  8. the only place i know in australia is Ayre’s Rock. or whatever it’s called. i don’t think that’s it because i think Ayre’s Rock is red and devoid of vegetation. but i’m going to guess that anyway because otherwise i’d have to google australia and try to find the name of a different rock.

    i’ll send you my mailing address for the prize, which i assume is Belle.

  9. Beautiful scenery but no idea what it is

  10. Is it a refuse pile? You know like a former dump?

  11. Someone’s already come up with my termite answer so I’m just gonna say, what ever it is, it’s big!

  12. Is that the rock you practice guarding to get your official bridge troll license?

  13. It’s Sally the Camel’s missing hump. Damn WT, she’s been looking for that thing for years.

  14. A fossilized Brontosaurus dump?

    Fantastic pictures.

  15. No clue but it looks like the biggest anthill I’ve ever seen. Run! Run for your life that must be some huge ants there!

  16. An extinct/inactive volcano? Beautiful pictures!!

  17. i say a giant nipple out in the open bush

  18. It’s an ant hill.
    BTW, it’s safe to come visit today. Not too much about boobs…just exercises.

  19. Or maybe a termite hill?

  20. whatever it is – it certainly has beautiful hues of mauve and lavender and blue. Green of course in the background to make those colors stand out.

    All three pictures are nice. the 2nd pix of the rock is from a different angle

  21. You know I haven’t a clue so here is my wild guess (hmmm…I just came from Marnie’s , so I’m guessing all over the place).

    A female Giant’s big hairy tit.

  22. hahaha to karmyn. You have cracked me up, i’m in pisses.

  23. i haven’t got a clue really so i’ll just guess anyways.. right?

    either the bungle bungle hills
    or adelaide hills


    your footie team? well victoria or queensland…

  24. Hmmm…my first thought was the product of a dung-beetle convention. But I’m not sure if you have those in Aussie-ville. If you don’t, you should.

  25. I’m impressed.

  26. An old volcano & North Sydney

  27. I haven’t a clue but it looks like lots of room for horses at the base of it and in the foreground.

  28. Clueless. I did enjoy looking at your pics. 🙂

  29. Shoot, I was going to say a volcano but someone beat me to it. I about fell out of my chair when I read that Little Miss Moi was in pisses. Hee hee!

    Love the photos!

  30. It looks like that mountain in Close Encounters of the Third Kind…

    doo doo doo doo doo…

  31. What about Broken Hill

  32. Can’t say what that name of that “hill” would be. I would say that it is mound of volcanic activity, or a meteorite.

  33. I think nikki has it – Alice the Camel’s missing hump. Love it.

  34. It’s the Hallayallawalla Pimple.

  35. Now, that looks like a place I’d like to live!! But, I haven’t a clue as to what the answer is. Beautiful pictures!

  36. I don’t know where or what, but could it be the top portion of a meteorite?!

  37. Hey I knew the answers to both questions but didn’t get here early enough Dang it!!

  38. I’m resisting the urge to say that just proves Banana benders are at least a day behind the rest of Australia!

  39. I’m sure this post wasn’t there when I looked early yesterday morning. I would hav esaid a bit volcanic looking it’s also a bit like some of the old coal heaps we see in some parts of UK.
