At the top of a rock staircase out of the Silent Street we clamber along some rock ledges until I decide it's been too long since we've seen a red arrow. Must've missed one at some point, but the only option besides forwards is left onto another volcanic rock field, so we go that way and I spot where we would have come up if we'd followed the trail, and our way seems faster anyhow. Soon we're at the Pinnacle, a sharp peak of rock sticking out over the valley and Halls Gap below. Too bad everything is absolutely socked in with fog. The way down relies on us catching every single one of the arrows and we do, and catch up with Jen at the turn off through the forest to the car park. I go down and have a read of a magazine on the bus, and forty minutes later everyone finally piles on. Turns out the Finnish-man went back to the Pinnacle after we came down and then got lost coming back to the turnoff. Must've missed an arrow.
After that we go to Mackenzie Falls for a view of the roaring water (the rain is good for something, at least), and then up a short track to look at some aboriginal rock art
After lunch in Horsham we've got a five hour long haul to get into Adelaide, with the only real break being to look at some genetic oddities: pure white kangaroos in an enclosure in Bordertown. Kind of creepy, makes 'em look like giant rats.
Then into Adelaide! City of churches, or, for me, more like "city of errands."
