One of the highlights of our July trip was watching the sun rise as we headed into Bourke, so we elected for another early departure from Byrock this trip.  The different time of year placed the sun further to the rear of us but the effect was just as lovely.

We were lucky to spot four wedge-tailed eagles just out of Bourke - even better, they stayed still for some zoomed shots!  (These guys generally see the camera and fly off)!  Vaughan often calls them "witch-tailed", which causes understandable amusement!

We re-fueled at Bourke but headed another 150km on to the NSW/Qld border at Barrigun, for breakfast - where Vaughan was happily entertained organising tumbleweed races!
