The next day saw more wide vistas and rock crossings. Typical views were like the photo below.

While most of the river crossings were relatively easy, some of the more adventurous spirits decided to do the manly thing and wade across. This gave the rest of us some light entertainment for a while.

By lunchtime we had already arrived in our designated campsite which had little shelter. The wind had picked up and was blowing sand around which made it quite uncomfortable – we therefore took the decision push on to the end. Most of us wanted a hot shower and a cold drink (ale) so we decided to walk the last 8kms to Ai-Ais. We finally arrived at Ai-Ais resort at 15h00, a day ahead of schedule.
