Stanley Chasm.

Stanley Chasm is a part of the West MacDonell Ranges which can be found 30 kilometers to the west of Alice Springs in the Northern Territory.

The most impressive time of the day to visit this area is when the midday sun is high above allowing the sun rays to light up the red walls of the chasm.

There is a car park and cafe at the entrance to the area and once leaving here, it is a short 20 minute easy walk to reach the chasm.

We found this plant growing on the side of one of the chasm walls. It would have to be one of the most drought tolerant plants alive to survive on minimal dirt on a stone face.
