Some of the birds, animals and scenery walking the Larapinta Hills

I am very lucky to have a beautiful place to walk the dog in the mornings and evenings - the hills behind Larapinta in Alice Springs. Over the past 6 months I have seen a wide variety of colours, animals, reptiles and birds. I haven't quite made it as far as the Larapinta Trail, but I'm sure if I kept walking I would eventually run into it. Some times I take the camera with me, other times it is really nice to be able to just experience everything the area has to offer without concentrating on trying to get a great photo. I have been amazed at the variety on my door step. Here are some of the photos. I hope you enjoy.
