Mt Kaputar and the Oxley

Finally left the Gwydir River and Bingara and headed to Narrabri.  Stopped on the way for lunch at Mt Kaputar NP and decided to stay the night.

The guide book said the area was a really good example of geological organ-piping, of course it is.  On to Narrabri the next morning for provisions and fuel.  The Newell being so unattractive to me I decided Boggabri would be different, lunched there then spent the arvo in the swimming pool with all the town kids.  Not that bad actually a nice facility.  Drove on to Curlewis for a look see then decided the Oxley toward Coonabarabran was the go.  Overnighted at a rest area and had a quiet night with very little traffic.
