The Missing Link

No, I didn't find ape-to-man fossils in the mud of Mt Crawford. I did the last catch-up hike today, I've now completed the Heysen Trail all the way from Cape Jervis to near Wilpena Pound.

Mt Crawford to Pewsey Vale
Southern Guidebook, Maps 3.9-4.2

Pretty cool stuff today, Wirra Wirra peaks is a real treat. Lots of farmland laneways too which were a bit special. And ruins of a quite large church on an isolated track, cool.

I've now completed 92% of the trail. Soon, the final episode - Red Range campsite (just south of Wilpena) to the end of the trail at Parachilna Gorge - some 92km.
