    Beyond the black stump

    We have a saying in Australia that anywhere to far is out past the "black stump". This really wasn't that far from home being only 2 hr drive, but the walk to it took a bit out of me since I have not done much exercise lately.
    The stump is all that's left from logging in the 1930, there now lots of trees but none as grand as what was there.

    Very nice. It is beautifully lit and skilfully exposed. It reminds me of a mountain, maybe the one in close encounters of a third kind..

    it's open to dispute but one version says the black stump was just outside Coolah in NSW and that's the one I'm sticking to
    I've been there a while back but there's no black stump, however, they do have a few nice gum trees

    I've also been "back o' Bourke" and I can vouch that there ain't much there !
    it's a case of all roads lead to White Cliffs because it's the only place worth going between Bourke and the border ;-)
