Across the Red Ranges: Highlights of the Larapinta Trail

West of Alice Springs, the western section of the MacDonnell Ranges rises in a series of parallel red ridges, stretched out across the wide, horizontal landscape of Central Australia. Known as Tjoritja by the local Arrernte people, the ranges run from Heavitree Gap, at Alice Springs, to beyond the distant heights of Mount Zeil, the highest peak in the range.
