Pancake Rocks

... create stacks that look like pancakes! Incidentally, they also sell pancakes for $18 there--apparently enough people crave pancakes after standing there they can charge that much. We did a couple of other hikes down into a cave and to a waterfall too--it seems like wherever we stop off, there are crazy formations and views to ...

... hold 20 people. We spent some time relaxing in the heat - until it got the point where it was too hot and we had to get out. We then all spent the afternoon and evening chilling out. At 9, we all went in to the bar area for Lisa to reveal who won the canyon swing. Flora got first place who dressed up as a fridge. Although her outfit was a box - she put a lot of effort in to it by painting it etc, so I'm glad she won. (But of course I'd ...
