    The purpose of this thread is to share you images of national parks from around the world. Please do include in your post at least the name and location of the national park so we can all share in the beauty and wonders of the our planet.

    To start things off this is a image of a rather popular rock, Sugar Loaf Rock which is found in the south-west of Western Australia in the Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park.

    The rock is so named as it apparently represents a sugar loaf.

    Barker Inlet - Day 2-07 by Andrew Priest (Aushiker), on Flickr

    Day 2: Esperance to Albany: The Unconventional Ride. 750 km in 10 days. Now on Barker Inlet Beach in the Stokes National Park. Definitely the highlight of the day's riding. The Salsa Mukluk handled it fine; I only dropped the tyre pressures to around 12 PSI.

    East Mt Barren - {Day 06-06} by Andrew Priest (Aushiker), on Flickr

    Day 6: Esperance to Albany: The Unconventional Ride. 750 km in 10 days. East Mount Barren close up. From here I rolled down from the foot of the mountain deeper into Fitzgerald River National Park to participate in its good and not so good aspects.

    Hamersley Drive Billabong - {Day 07-01} by Andrew Priest (Aushiker), on Flickr

    Day 7: Esperance to Albany: The Unconventional Ride. 750 km in 10 days. This billabong in the Fitzgerald River National Park is a bit of a "mirage" in that it is cooling water but it is water with a catch; salt and more salt. No drinking water to be had here. Maybe a salty swim but that is about it.

    I think I've watched too many episodes of shows like "Crocodile Hunter" and "Wild Things". I look at your image and immediately wonder what kind of deadly things are slithering or crawling in there.

    Mt Manypeaks - {Day 11- 11} by Andrew Priest (Aushiker), on Flickr

    Day 11: Esperance to Albany: The Unconventional Ride. 750 km in 10 days. Mt Manypeaks from a north-western perspective. My last substantive view of the mountain before leaving the park.
