Day 6 – Mungo Station The temptation to just stay in bed was seriously there, I cannot lie. But I eventually forced myself out of bed for sunrise back at the Walls of China. I was sore and tired, but I may never be this way again, so I forced myself, one foot in front…

Day 5 – Sea Lake > Mungo Station Some got up real early to capture sunrise, but there was none. We stayed in bed but did get up early to capture some of the fog, it was unreal. Took an already unworldly vista and turn it into something almost ghostly to it. So different from…
