Alice Springs, AU – Saturday, Feb 22nd, 2014

I slept in after a very long day at Uluru Friday.  I’m going to take it easy today with a long day planned at The West MacDonnell Ranges Sunday.  I buy another SD card for my camera because I have 2,500+ photos on the current card and don’t know when it will be full.  The in ear headphones I used on the Uluru Tour hurt my ears so I find ear buds I was looking for in the first place.  Third pair of ear phones, I hope these last me the rest of my trip.  I take photo’s around Alice Springs and Anzac Hill.  Anzac Hill was unveiled April 25, 1934 as a memorial to those members of the armed forces who died in World War I.  The hill is now a memorial to all who have served during all wars Australia has participated.  The hill is too steep to wheel up.

I have lunch at Red Ochre Grill on Todd Mall.  It is accessible with a ramp up to the entrance.  I try kangaroo for the first time.  It is only ok and a little dry.  I don’t see me trying it again.  I go to the Olive Pink Botanic Gardens.  It is nothing like any of the other gardens I’ve been, no beautifully colored flowers.  This is a desert garden.  It has difficult pathways to wheel through.  Loosely packed gravel and hiking areas I can’t get to.

I have dinner at the Ibis Hotel bar and head to bed early.
