Alyape(Palm Valley)-before and after Strehlow project by Benita Clements
Horse and cart was necessary to travel back in those days. It took a long time to get anywhere. Nowadays tourists can visit these places quickly and easily as there are cars and buses. It’s getting easier to see places that we couldn’t before.
You can also see in my paintings that the county has changed. Back in those days there was lots of sand, but over the years rocks have fallen from the mountains, so now there’s lots of rocks around the waters edge.
