Sunrise To Camels

Monday, June 1, 2009

We started the day off with watching the beautiful sunrise at Ayers Rock. The sun would reflect off the rock and give it a wonderful reddish orange color. After that we headed closer to rock where we learned how the rock had changed over time. The rock has lived for so long and will for another 350 years because it is hollow. When it rains the water goes onto the rock, down the rock and makes a water hole. This water hole fills up very quickly. When I saw the rock I thought it looked cool because where the water flowed it looked like a river. After that we drove to the camel farm. One thing I learned that I was surprised about was that camels sometimes drink 100 to 200 liters of water in 10 minutes. I don't even drink that much in a day. I also learned that the camels humps are to store extra fat. Since it was raining we didn't get to ride our regular route so instead we just got to ride a little path. When we climbed onto the camel and it stood up I was kinda of freaked out because I could have fallen off. As we entered into Cairns it got warmer and everyone was so excited. The rest of our trip was going to be wonderful with the warm weather.
