Tom Price is a mining town and is surrounded by iron ore mines. I used it as a base to visit Karijini National Park. All the National Parks have a $15 entry fee per vehicle, $10 for Seniors, I have an Annual Pass. There are a few narrow gorges with pools of water, I only went to the Lookouts not down into the Gorges, very picturesque.
I also visited the Hamersley Gorge and the Wittenoom Gorge which was where they mined asbestos and has been abandoned.
I went for a drive up Mount Nameless, a very rough track, walking pace, definitely only 4wd.
I was planning to leave today but noticed a slow leak in my right rear tyre, it had only 11psi so I decided to fit a full set of good quality new tyres designed for the roads I am going to travel on. The tyres that came with the vehicle were mismatched, 2 were old and 2 were new but rubbish, one of them got punctured, probably by a sharp stone. This is a common occurrence on these roads, which is why I am carrying 2 spare tyres.
Such incredible sites you are discovering, Chris! My sincere congratulations to Lola Young, I do agree with her! Herta

People are slowly beginning to recognise the original names and use them.
