Intentions to activate summits on the drive over to WA were thwarted by the ridiculous heat and associated fire danger. In any case I was too tired and the delay due to the Eyre Highway being closed meant I just wanted to push through to meet the family.
Arrived in Esperance to find the nearby national park had been evacuated that day due to new bushfires.
It reopened today so we jumped at the opportunity and took the 20km beach run along Wylie Beach to the park. Sections are so good you can easily do 60km/h, but there are some short softer and rutted parts.
We came awfully close to the (contained) fires and crews dealing with them.
May have a look at VK6/SG-010 tomorrow.
