Long-Distance Walks with Mark Moxon

Pilbara Bushwalk: Day 7: Whim Creek

Homeward bound, I wish I was homeward bound
Home, where my thought's escaping
Home, where the music's playing
Home, where my love lies waiting silently for me...

'Homeward Bound', Simon and Garfunkel

We covered the remaining distance in no time, at least compared to the hard going through the creeks and spinifex. Apart from a kilometre through the scrub it was all road, and according to some warped tradition of Scott's, we ran the last 50m to the cars, which were a sight for sore eyes.
