Wild emus were also on the list of not-to-be-missed critters and, again, I'd reached the end of the trip without seeing any. But John and Becky pulled this one off for me, too! What lovely friends!

The Silverton Hotel, a local watering hole, has been in a number of movies including Mad Max II.
When I first got out of the car, I didn't notice anything out of the ordinary. Until it dawned on me that we weren't in the States. The day we were in Silverton was the U.S.'s election day, and they were flying the American flag.
We're gonna go flying!
Take off! Hee hee hee!
Across the Outback 2/100
John and Becky's house is in there somewhere. Now if I could only remember which one ;-)
Me and Becky in the RFDS shop.
First sight of Broken Hill.
Me and John in front of the plane.
Mundi Mundi plains
I'm pretty sure this is a fox, although it's much taller than ones I've seen in the States.
I just *love* the look of the land from up here!
The distinct edges of Broken Hill, where the town stops and the outback begins.
A busy day at the airport.
The streets of Broken Hill.
When I stepped outside the airport, I looked up and for the first time ever saw the red earth reflected on the clouds above. It was just beautiful.
Brumbies!!!! One of the not-to-be-missed sights in Australia for me were brumbies, and I'd reached the end of my trip without seeing any. But on our way out to the Mundi Mundi plains, there was a herd grazing on both sides of the road. What a wonderful sight!

Becky and John, giving the thumbs up for change.
Flying over the Broken Hill mine.

Looking out from the Cafe in Silverton. We stopped and had some of the best pie and scones and cream I've ever had! Great place!
