    • There are some cool toadstool rock formations near there that I really wanted to see but you need a four-wheel drive (or a ton of stamina) to get into them. I’m definitely going back and if we don’t ‘win’ the wave lottery we’ll have to rent one of those vehicles.

  1. Such striking movement and texture in these photos. Made me want to reach out and stroke the screen. What an amazing experience it must have been to be standing in the midst of it all.
