Murphy's Haystack's

By Joeblowfromoz
These amazing and unique rock formations at called Murphy's Haystacks.

We camped just here for 4 nights last week and enjoyed the landscape so very much.

Murphys Haystacks are inselberg rock formations located between Streaky Bay and Port Kenny on the Eyre Peninsula in South Australia.

They obtained their name because a traveller in a coach saw the formation in the distance. He asked how a farmer could produce so much hay. As the farm was on a property owned by a man called Murphy, the rocks became known as Murphys Haystacks...well thats the story anyway......

Taken early one morning just after sunrise and with the partial moon still in the sky.

Thanks for all the comments and votes on yesterday's - much appreciated.

Have played 3 holes of golf on the golf course - next hole is 110 k's up the road - scores not looking crash hot so far lol
