So what came after this final hike of the day? If you haven't caught on yet, let me give you a hint. It involves the sun. Yup, another sunset to catch but in a new location. This sunset would focus on Kata Tjuta. I was a bit worried at first because the clouds looked like they would cover the sunset entirely but we lucked out on the time and got a pretty decent sunset.
Tomorrow would be our final full day and night marveling at all that the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park has to offer. We planned...well, we debated back and forth about climbing Uluru. After our mothers highly encouraged us to NOT climb it and be respectful of the aboriginal's land, we decided to take in some culture that is offered within the resort. We caught a talk held by an aboriginal man about hunting and utilizing various spears and boomerangs. We visited the two museums within the resort that gave us a great deal of history on the land; specifically the animals, the local aboriginals and tourism. We got some close encounters at the Camel Farm. Our final day was pretty relaxed and very enjoyable.
What a road trip! It was an incredible drive that took us through wine country in South Australia, the mountains and plains of the Flinders Ranges, some weird little towns, the vast nothingness of the outback and finally to the mesmerizing Uluru-KataTjuta National Park. All of us loved it but we were extremely excited to get a break from camping while also being in warm weather again. Queensland...we're coming your way!! Thank you to our Wicked camper that safely got us through all of our trip. See-ya cold! HELLO tropical warmth!
