Well folks today we arrived at the Ayers Rock campground after being at King's Canyon Resort campground for 3 days and have had no mobile or internet coverage at all so this post will be a little heavy. We started out from Alice Springs and headed south to spend the evening in Erldunda. A roadhouse and campground at the turn off to Uluru and King's Canyon. I cannot tell you how delighted I was to actually spend some time in the warm sunshine stitching and thawing out after the previous days spent freezing my butt off in Alice Springs.
After our big trek Gary was keen to go back and do the 2km walk along the King Creek bed which runs through the canyon and is dry. It was a very pretty walk too but we were definitely feeling the previous day's activity.
We have loved our time here and the wildlife has been abundant. Beautiful blackheaded green parrots, little gold honeyeaters, busy top knotted pigeons and pied butcher birds. I saw my first wild camel this morning on our journey wandering through the bush close to the road....it looked so odd really.
So here we are eager to investigate Uluru (Ayers Rock) which took our breath away when it came into view.
It is Territory Day today and celebratory fireworks have been lighting up the skies tonight. We managed to view 'the rock' just as the sun set and viewed it's miraculous change of colour.
I shall try and do a couple of posts while we are here and have coverage so you don't get a huge screed like this one.
Take care all,
Blessings Michelle xx
