Awesome Awfulness! #Inktober2016 Day 15

The Gwalia Gold Mine, now open pit, is 290 metres deep and 750 metres wide! The mine has produced more than 4 million ounces of gold and there are about 2 million ounces left.  The impact on the environment is just as awesome as the engineering feat but in a different way.  For an overview of impacts read this.

London Bridge, WA – #Inktober2016

Camel trains and cars are no longer allowed to drive over and under London Bridge in the Shire of Sandstone, Western Australia! I am relieved.  I’m wondering how the bridge got its name! 😀

In 2011 the census recorded 105 people in the whole Shire, which is nearly 33,000 sq kms in size, including 6 aboriginals.

It was Lela’s 7th birthday today and she got to meet 2 medium sized poodles at London Bridge (in this empty, red land).  Our toy held her own. She’ll be a red dog by the time we get home! 😉
