Cold water no more!

IMG_5885 A town abandoned. Central Australia has a boom bust economy. When things are going well we see massive growth but as soon as the wealth creators dry up everything is just abandoned. I was on a run in North West Queensland and came across this concrete slab with a water cooler on it. In the back ground is a pair of old boots hinging in the tree. A true image of Australia.

I could have used a nice cool drink at this point. The water in my Nathan Sport hip bottles was hot and it was only just after sunrise. It could be because I was born only 200km from this location that I find myself drawn to this landscape.
