Standley Chasm

Our final stop of the day was Standley Chasm, a narrow gorge whose walls rise up to 80 m. Here we followed the path from the car park to the gorge entrance, before wandering inside for a closer look. There is only a small section of the gorge open to the public, a small chain fence marks the end of the trail with a sign asking you not to go any further as the gorge presents potential risk. We didn’t listen to the sign. After a morning of swimming and climbing through gorges the boys and I weren’t ready to stop. We quickly hopped the fence and continued further into the gorge. I’m glad that we did, we climbed to the highest point we could and were rewarded with great views of the region.
