The Olgas and the Valley of the Winds

We got up nice and early this morning (4:30!) to beat the crowds and be first in line to watch the sunset.  It was a good idea, as there were 4 rows of people behind me when we left, but it was hard getting up.

And then we went for a 3 hour walk in the Olgas and the Valley of the Winds. It gets so hot in the middle of the day that the path closes at 11, so we had to be done by then.

After camel burgers for lunch, we had another dip in the pool then made our way to our second camp site near Kings Canyon where we got to relax for a little! Then it was kangaroo for dinner and an astronomy lesson.  You can see the stars and milky way so clearly here, it’s the most unbelievable sight of all! And I had an early night’s sleep, as we had to get up at 4 am the next morning.
