Trekking with the T-Team—Ormiston Gorge
135km east of Alice Springs, nestled in the Central Australian MacDonnell Ranges is a scenic treasure, Ormiston gorge.
Again, thank you Mohamad Al Karbi for the opportunity to share this T-Team adventure as they explore Ormiston Gorge and then camp on the other side in the Pound.

Again, many thanks to Mahamad Al Karbi for offering the opportunity to share my outback Aussie adventures on his site.
