We arrived at Kings Canyon very early:
I was quite nervous because, well, I'm scared of heights. I think it does show:
Note Amandine holding me... Susan, I do think you were brave to say Yes.
The path is very steep at the beginning of the walk, but it does not last that long, and when you are on top, you don't regret the effort, believe me. It is all flat, well almost.
The colors are gorgeous. In Uluru and Kata Tjuta, the stones are red to their core. Although the stones in Kings Canyon are also red, they are white, covered with red dust from the two others.
After walking on the top, we went down the stairs (there are the same on the other side to climb up again)
to reach the Garden of Eden at the bottom. As you can see, the vegetation is quite dense. And there are birds singing all the way down.
This is the other end of the pool. The white marks are the droppings of the birds nesting there.
After climbing back to the top, we had a little snack
hosted by these two cute and funny pigeons.
If you watched The Adventures Of Priscilla, Queen Of The Desert, you may have recognized the landscape.
