How awesome are the Pinnacles? I know, it’s quite a contrast to the beautiful lush green rice fields surrounding us here. But I thought I’d put in a bit of a flashback to a recent visit because we’re linking up with Four Around the World’s Snapshot Story.
We were in Perth for a month visiting my family and my uncle and aunt from the UK in March, before moving to Cambodia and we did a day trip to the Pinnacles with them.
It’s such a great place to take visitors. And this trip was really special because it was 11 years since I’d last seen my Uncle Vic and 19 years since I saw my Aunty Jan. The tyranny of distance can create great gaps in family relationships and it was wonderful to spend the time together and reconnect.
I’ve been fascinated with these ancient limestone formations for many years. The Pinnacles Desert is situated in the Nambung National Park, about 160 kilometres north of Perth in Western Australia.
I’ve visited on numerous occasions but usually the backdrop was a vivid blue sky and sometimes scorching temperatures of around 50 degrees Celsius in the sun.
The clouds added a new, more dramatic mood. It’s hard to believe this harsh landscape is a short distance to beautiful white beaches and the Indian Ocean.
Thanks to Holly for the opportunity to link up with Four Around the World’s Snapshot Story. Head on over and check out some of the other posts and interesting stories.
Have you ever visited the Pinnacles? Or got a cool snapshot you want to share? We’d love to hear your experience.
