Kings Canyon

The day we travelled to Kings Canyon was absolutely freezing! It rained at Yalara the night before and everything was very damp.

You can't book campsites at Kings Canyon so it was first in best dressed. Around those parts, first in is 10 am, we got there around 3pm so a damp unpowered night was ours to enjoy!

We had several creek crossings to make.

Close your eyes Mrs M and hope for the best!

Despite the damp night, the next day we walked to the canyon. It was fantastic, the rains had filled the creek and we had to do some rock hopping to cross the stream.

Kings Creek flowing.

Crossing the creek, dressed for the snow!

 Despite the cold, it was great fun! We rugged up and battened down the hatches and locked the food and footwear away from the dingos.
