... and checked in for the night at the local camp grounds where we then decided to take the Baruwei Loop Walk, with the intention of seeing the Gorge in all its glory. I learnt 3 valuable lessons from that walk - 1) Never walk with Emma again 2) The Baruwei Loop Walk was no where near as exciting as it suggested it would be 3) We would be doing something else other than walking the following day.
