Ashburton River & Old Onslow

 

 Western Australia
 

Ashburton River & old abandoned Onslow Townsite, West Australia. The ruins of the old town are located 45 km by road from Onslow, with the turnoff being 20 km south of Onslow on the main access road to the town. When the old town was re-sited in 1925, all potentially portable buildings were moved. Only the old stone and cement buildings like the post office, police station, gaol and hospital remain.

FOOTPRINTS in the ASH

 

Lavishly illustrated ‘picture book’ that shares the full, explosive

story of Mount St Helens. Written by two experts who know the

volcano—and its famous 1980 eruption—best. Includes rare

photographs by the authors.

 

A powerful testament to the Creator and Judge, who forms

canyons in just hours, not millions of years!

"For you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night. For when

they say, “Peace and safety!” then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labour pains upon a

pregnant woman. And they shall not escape. But you, brethren, are not in darkness, so that this Day

should overtake you as a thief. You are all sons of light and sons of the day. We are not of the night nor

of darkness... For God did not appoint us to wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus

Christ, who died for us, that whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with Him."

 Letter - 1st Thessalonians  ch.5  vs.1-10.  The Holy Bible - New King James Version
