Wave Rock/Hyden

Basked in the sunset’s afterglow and its pink and yellow iridescence while on a 2.63 billion year old granite inselberg (a biotite K-feldspar porphyritic monzogranite). Seriously, the massive granite formations in Western Australia are amazing and offer beautiful views.

Also got the chance to visit an aboriginal rock art site and got to see line paintings and hand stencils that probably date back to 400 to 40,000 years ago (age of paintings is difficult to establish). A snake joined us while we appreciated the ancient aboriginal art works (I jumped off the rock and just got out of the cave). Also met a couple of ornate dragons while walking around, which was pretty cool.
