Heat, thirst and landscapes like I have seen nowhere else: this is how the first trail in the red Australian desert started. The goal of the day was to bathe in the river in Kings Canyon and see the lost city from above.
A journey through Central Australia means exploring natural and unique attractions and knowing the routes of aborigine culture; understanding its tales and paintings, or at least what we are allowed to know. They let you see and feel their land, but little can be documented or explained. The oldest people on Earth does not have the written word, and passes on their knowledge for those with enough responsibility.
This weird lizard is very difficult to find. Called Thorny Devil because it’s appearance, it only hurts those who trample it. Its camouflage skin has the colors of the outback’s floor and vegetation. I had luck when I found it in the middle of nowhere while I was picking wood for the fire camp. There was an Australian who caught in her hands to show us how inoffensive it was.
