Kata Tjuta/Mount Olga - The Valley of the Winds

August 9th 2011 06:04
... when every step is worth the effort ...

After watching the first rays of the sun light up the domes of Kata Tjuta/Mount Olga we travelled to the car park, near the foot of the domes, at the beginning of The Valley of The Winds Walk. This walk wends its way, for 7.4 kilometres, through some of the Kata Tjuta/Mount Olga's spectacular scenery.
At the beginning of the walk, much to our delight and before I could get my camera ready, we saw some camels disappearing into the surrounding bush.
