After the first 20-minute climb, (see previous post), the King’s Canyon hike was fairly straightforward.
Oh, there was a swaying little bridge walk over a very deep part of the canyon, but it looked sturdy to me, and after all, these places have to have liability insurance, right?
The 6+ kilometer hike ambled a bit up and down, round the curves and up and down again, but negotiating it only took patience, and not much in the way of superior hiking skills. I had water, my walking stick, camera, and three companions. The day was beautiful and the camera captured only a bit of the spectacular red surroundings.
Some fooling around out on the overhangs, but you notice I didn’t walk out there! The kids and Neil seemed to have less caution than I generally do in high places. So I had an opportunity to snap a few of these crazy climbers!
We finished the hike by 11:00 a.m., returned to our ‘resort” and grabbed Kindles, towels and fresh water before we headed to the pool for a few hours of refreshing relaxation. Tomorrow, we will head out to Uluru and the next part of our Outback adventure!
