We left Alice Springs early this morning and drove the 450k to Kings Canyon, we got our gas bottle filled up on the way so cooking dinner was too easy.... makes a change from burning hot fire bbqs :) we stayed at the Kings Canyon resort which even ha a swimming pool yes thats right a swimming pool right in the middle of the desert! We managed to do the short walk along the base of the canyon, though tomorrow we tackle the canyon base walk! We also took a dip in the swimming pool and the water was freezing! At night time we watched the sunset over the canyon, then to our luck! The moon popped up from behind the canyon and the lunar eclipse show began! lucky us!! coudlnt ask for a better place to view it.... could see the whole of the milky way so clearly as well and loads of shooting stars, was excellent stuff, prolly my most favourite part of being out in the bush!
