The Katherine Gorge - Nitmiluk National Park

This past Sunday after church, we decided to take a casual Sunday drive.  We drove out to the Katherine Gorge which is part of the Nitmiluk National Park.  The Katherine Gorge is made up of 13 gorges, and we have yet to explore this place.  We decided to take a quick hike to the Baruwei Overlook.  You can see the staircase in the photo on the far left.  It was a bit of a hike, but had a beautiful view at the top.  We decided to take the loop back to our car, but didn't realize how far it was, and it was nearing sunset.  I think it was a 3.7km (about 2 miles) hike altogether.  Besides rushing to get to our car before dark and Cody not wearing his shoes, It was a lovely time out.  Below is a photo of the kids and myself at the overlook.  I'm so thankful we had some time away.  We all need that every so often!
