Early morning rise? why yes, yes it was. The alarm went off at 5am this morning only it wasn’t an alarm it was our tour guide throwing logs onto the damp fire. Not only was this the coldest night sleep in all of my 19 years of living but to be woken up to be told that we had another hike to do in 2 hours. Don’t get me wrong I love the outdoors but when I am cold I am a force not to be reckoned with!
We started the walk at 7.45am which was a lot better than yesterday, we walked all the way through the valley of the winds in Kata Tjuta which took us round about 4 hours with minor 10/15 minute brakes in between. Always carry a hat people, the sun is not your friend. The walk itself was beautiful, the land was an untouched beauty which made the walk so much more incredible to do also for those people out there who like small but scenic walks there is quite a few to do here so do it. After a long day climbing mountains in the midst of the heat we finally got to Uluru by sunset.
As much as you have to see Uluru you have to see it at sunset. It will go down in my top 10 experiences for sure. When your surrounded by beautiful souls who make every second it of the experience ten times better, champagne that tickles you tastebuds and finally, having Luke by my side the whole time. The moment felt like it lasted years with laughter everywhere and colourful lights falling upon Ayes Rock whilst the sunset…… Truly amazing.
By nightfall we had eaten our last meal for the evening, all sitting round the campfire roasting marshmallows and laughing at stupid stories, this group was to be missed unreal amounts. That night we even got a visit from a dingo who was more interested in the camel burgers in the freezer than the yummy looking humans all asleep and defenceless.
