The park had only just opened for the day and we were one of the first cars to arrive. We checked out the map included with the guide then set off along the trail, the monoliths were lit up casting strange colours in the morning light, as the sun rose higher in the sky the darker shaddowy colours turned to rich red and orange shades, a sharp contrast to the ever ... read more
