Look how beautiful it is. (the Canyon not me) It was a long trip from Alice Springs to Kings Canyon but a very nice trip.We travel in a four weel drive coach with a very nice diver/guide..
Here too a beautiful picture of Kings Canyon. We had make a beautifil walk in the Kings Canyon, there are very spectaculair views everywhere.
Here one of the many Lizards. There are many sorts of lizards in the outback and Kings Canyon. Sometimes they are very close to you.
This is where a lot of people turn back probably because there is no chain along the second half of the climb.
The climb was actually closed on the day that we arrived due to high winds. They also close it whenever the temperature gets too high - which happens every day not long after dawn during the summer!
However, it was open the following day and, although I felt guilty going against the owners' wishes, the steady stream of people already climbing made me give in to my irrational desire to go up.
Here another one. This one was very close and stay where it was. He want to be on the photo i think. lol .Wel i make a nice photo of him.
Most people go to see Uluru at sunset or sunrise. We chose sunset. There is plenty of parking at the viewing areas where you can see the rock change colour as the sun sets.
One of the last views we had of Kata Tjuta before heading to Kings Canyon. The sand was so unbelievably red, looked almost otherworldly!
It's great to watch how the rock changes colour at sunrise/sunset and it's a good idea to take photos at regular intervals to see the changes.
There is a covered shelter a little down the hill from the Minymaku Platform. There are also good views of Uluru from it and a few places to sit in the shade.
Even though you expect Ayres rock to be big and red its even bigger and redder than you thought it woudl be.
The olgas are another rock formation near to ayres rock. They are even bigger than ayres rock although they have ravines running through them.
some local cycads and plants spotted on the ground. Look out for unusual plants in the aussie desert :)
