Camels crossing salt lake

Camels crossing salt lake on Nilpinna Station between old Nilpinna ruins and the Gluepot crossing

Every now and then we get cornered on salt lakes and, to save many hours or even days of futile manouvering, we risk a crossing.

This is perhaps the most amount of trust ever sought from a lead camel in a string. If the lead camel refuses to walk then there isn't any hope of making headway.

Camels hate to walk in sloshy mud but as our earlier crossing was successful (see tracks on left) the return crossing was confidently accomplished.
