Welcome to the showcase of our Larapinta walk photo in the Northern Territory.

The walk took 15 days and started from the end of the walk, Mt Sonder which is 223km from Alice springs.  We carried a few days of supplies and camping gear with us and relied on camp stops along the way for water and food drops.  The photographs below are a summary of the actual trip. For the full photo story see the daily trip reports on the main menu.

The rains came and Day 11 was awash-out.  We were close enough to Alice Springs.  So we made our way there to review our options.  Fortunately the rains slowed/stopped and allowed us to complete the walk.
