We've taken an unscheduled day in Kings Canyon, north of Uluru, based on recommendation from a couple of other bikers whose route we are paralleling.
The road in was surreal - sinuous tarmac and wide bends through everchanging landscape. My preconceptions before doing the road trip were that central Australia was a sandy desert. Uluru and Kings Canyon were a sea of green and gold. We splurged yesterday and took a helicopter flight over the Canyon. Our Pilot said they had experienced four times the annual rainfall this Wet Season, and had a whole year's rain in one day after Christmas - the spent centre of a tropical cyclone.
As the sun set on the Carmichael Ranges, the full Moon rose in perfect unison.
