Revisited Purple Island on 22 Dec 2012 for a family field trip of Association of Indonesian Petroleum Engineers (IATMI) Chapter Qatar. As a trip leader, I had 19 cars in tow in the foggy morning that turned out to become a slightly hot day. Nevertheless, it was still an interesting trip. And as always the most interesting part was while crossing the first two water breaches. Two kids were perfectly wetted due to slippage during the crossing 🙂
With us was one geologist who happy enough to share his knowledge on rock formation. Interesting!
We also had a small clean-up drive; collecting rubbish dumped by irresponsible people. We found usual and interesting items: from energy drink cans, plastic bottles, plastic bags, instant noodle cup to – I’m sorry – co***m. Fiuuhh.
Some pictures from the visit below.
