Warrumbungle N.P. - Part Four

The slow-growing Xanthorrhoeas's down in the gully have regenerated wonderfully, and looking fabulous with long flower spires.  It was a bit tricky getting to photograph them while the terrain was hard stepping over big and little boulders.

HI Carole These are very long flower spires on them. The area looks a bit scary under foot.

They are lovely trees? or bushes? Either way I am glad they are making a great comeback! Great shots!

They look like right out of prehistoric times. I'd love to be able to go for a walkabout there.

Wow some rugged terrain but beautiful. Such an interesting plant. Sort of reminds me of a Palm tree.

I love those trees! They seem to thrive after a fire. That blackened hillside in one of the photos seems sad though - how many animals couldn't flee in time? How many fire-sensitive plants perished?
