Oppy's next destination - the Shoemaker Ridge...

Attached Image


(3D version here http://roadtoendeavour.files.wordpress.com/2011/10/sr-3d.jpg )

Some more height...surrounded by lots of gorgeous rocks...view right across Endeavour... our first view too, probably, of the Promised Land in the centre of Cape York where the phylosillicates are waiting to be found...

Go get 'em, Oppy! smile.gif

Edit: looks like Oppy's on the move... smile.gif
