The track starts with this picturesque row of stepping stones. I cross first, hesitating for quite a while at the little rock covered by water towards the end, I'm worried about slipping. Ian is following. Just as I successfully reach the other side there's a splash. He has slipped into the freezing cold water.
His boots are full of water and his trousers are ringing wet. He's cold and miserable and as we were on a day trip we have no change of clothes! We make our way back over the stones and that's the end of our trip to Carnarvon Gorge.
And some people make it look so easy.
