I loved visiting Lake Mungo National Park! It was a bumpy ride there, but it was a breathtaking experience. I saw many kangaroos and emus on the way there and back.

The land was beautiful and gorgeous, going from brush to sand dunes in one area that used to be under water approximately around 80,000 years ago. It is so hard to believe that this beautiful land once was a massive lake.

It was extremely interesting to see the massive sand dunes against the nice calm green land. Even though the day started off quite cold, it warmed up as we hiked through the national park and through the sand dunes. Even though I have pictures in this blog to show what I saw, it does not compare to what I saw in person.
The beautiful landscape.
Everything is massive and big, stretching on for miles.
