Burnin' ring of fire

I
remember watching the introduction of a Seinfeld episode once where
Jerry, in his usual stand-up mode, was explaining his theory on why
people smoke. He made smoking sound like a craving sustained due to
primitive, caveman mentalities. The line went something like, “People
like to have smoke near their faces to show that they have power. ‘Look.
I have fire. I am mighty.’”

If you've never been on that back road between King's Canyon and
Hermannsburg please, for your own sake, do. I’m fairly sure it has been
rated amongst the top ten four-wheel drive tracks in Australia, although
this would probably be for visual reasons as the road – other than some
corrugation – is fairly light going. On either side of the track there
is amazing shrubbery and the wide sloping hills caress in a valley that
looks like it was made for a path to some secret land. Photos by Oliver Eclipse.
