Finke River & MacDonnell Ranges

The area around Alice Springs has been transformed by incredible Summer rains, usually dry, dusty and red the valleys are currently green and lush.

When we reached Glen Helen station we were offered the opportunity to view the landscape by helicopter. I really hate heights but the idea of taking some different photos was compelling.

I learnt a great deal during the flight..... a door less helicopter means a lot of wind and consequently passengers spend most of the time hanging on tightly... this didn't really allow much time for talking photos LOL.
