In another generation it will be my great-grandkids learning about the conquest of death.

Critters from Down Under

A couple of weeks ago, I somehow managed to find myself in Australia. As an incurable outdoors enthusiast, I wanted to get a taste of outdoor experiences Down Under. Australia is such a huge and diverse country, it is impossible to see it all in a short time.
