Sep 28, 2017 - It rained!

It rained last night... And the swags weren't very comfy. I got pretty hot during the night, so I opened up the front of my swag... then it rained so I had to shut it. An hour or so later, rain stopped but was hot again, so I opened up the bag. But it started to rain again! Ugghhh. Back under covers till day break. Was kinda disappointed during the night... it was supposed to be the best night to see so many stars. I saw a bit of the milky way back in Quorn, but not as clear as I should have last night. Good thing we didn't buy the...

Sep 28, 2017 - Best hike!

We then played the 'box game' which entertained us until dinner time. Dinner incidentally was cooked on the camp fire-very impressed we were! It was then early to bad fo another early start the following day to enter the Kings Canyon national park for a 3 hour rim walk. Despite starting the walk...

Oct 8, 2005 - Kings Canyon (13/08/05)

An early start needed to get there and back in a day and still have plenty of time to waalk around. Sleeping-in is rarely a problem when you wake up in a car though but I did lose time going from the campsite back to the lodge where I stayed the first night: their kitchen was much better. A handy product that was used extensively out here was Nescafe in a tube. Sounds ghastly, but you get white coffee without the fag of having to drag the individual ingredients around with you. Not the best, but very effective. Anyway, I don't remember...
