Kings Canyon to Uluru

It was only a 300 Km drive from Kings Canyon to Uluru so we had plenty of time to enjoy the views along the way. Just out of Kings Canyon we saw a red kangaroo close to the road. It fled when we approached but stopped to watch us from a distance. After finding a few geocaches along the way we stopped about 30 Km ahead of Yelara where a family was waiving down cars after there car broke down. The tow truck could only carry 2 extra people so we gave the other 2 a lift to the resort where we would be staying.
After check-in we reconfirmed the tours we booked ahead. Just before half passed 5 a minivan picked us up to take us to the airport where we took a scenic flight over Kata Tjuta and Uluru during sunset. It was an amazing sight to see the rocks turn bright red as the sun disappeared over the horizon.
