Camel Tour at Sunrise
Up early like at 4:45 A.M. so we can get a ride on a camel. Meet the bus at 5 A.M.
and drove to the camel yards which was not far from the hotel. We had the
honor of riding the chief stud (Rodney) for a lovely one hour ride on the desert
over red earth and many beautiful dessert plants. We where in a camel trail
of eight camels and they where all connected together and the leader of the camel
trial walked along in front and stopped at various places and talked about the desert flora.
After an hour ride to watch the sunrise we arrived back at the camel stables
where we had home made beer bread and coffee or tea. It was very tasty. Back
to the hotel to gather our things and off to the airport at Ayers Rock so we
could be rocketed down the runway for our second flight within the continent in a
Boeing 717 jet for a 25 minute ride to Alice Springs.
