Australian outback photo-essay

    HERE IS A PLACE BEYOND the mountains of the Great Dividing Range, lost to the shining lights of Australia’s suburban sprawl. Known vaguely, if romantically, as the outback, or the bush, it has no demarcated border but refers to the nation’s vast, sparsely populated interior — 73 percent of Australia’s territory — more than two million square miles — dotted with 5 percent of its 24 million people.

It looks a bit like southern Idaho.

Yeah, I ran down a joey on our longest trip into the outback. Otherwise we enjoyed ourselves enormously. Zooming in a four-wheel drive along a track on the edge of a dried out salt lake, sun, cloudless sky, A/C on full, and Rossini overtures blasting out of the cassette player. Yippee!
