Wave Rock

Juno running from the tsunami at wave rock.

Today we took a short (400 km round-trip) deviation to visit wave rock.

The massive granite ‘flared slope’ was chewed away by differing levels of water moisture below the original ground level over thousands of years.

The colours in the wave are caused by colonies of lichens, mosses and algae.

A short climb to not the top of the rock offers spectacular views out across the surrounding plains.

Tonight it feels like rain is moving in, which is a shame. I imagine standing up here on a clear star-crowded night would be staggering.
