Gibson Desert 1997 - Day Seven

Day Seven: Thursday 25th September 1997
Young Ranges to Mount Worsnop

We left Charlies Knob on a rough track known as the Gary Highway. This eventually caught up again with the Gunbarrel. We turned south on the Hunt Oil Road after having a quick look at the bore sunk by the Geraldton Historical Society.

The Hunt Oil Road caused the slowest going so far. It's a spinafex track 150kms long which took us over four hours to cover. Terry the driver had to convert the OKA to front wheel drive because the back shaft universal joint failed.

We stopped at Alexander Springs on the way to Mount Worsnop and took the group photo. Alexander Springs was the water pool that saved Alexander Forrest's life during one of his expeditions. This area was unsuitable as a camp site due to the number of mosquitoes.

Not far away was Mount Worsnop, a picturesque mesa with an area of about 6 acres on top. Some of us climbed to the top which gave us great panormanic views.
