A good reason to get up in the morning

Australia has some fabulous sunrises and sunsets, and our first sunrise after setting out on the road to Perth was spectacular.

We camped in Seymour, New South Wales—which seems to be the mosquito capital of the entire nation—in a rest area right beside the highway.

The blood suckers savaged me, through two layers of clothing, until I managed to find the bug repellent. Then road trains (double and triple-length trucks) and cars thundered by all night. Foolishly, I put my roll mat on a bit of a slope, so slid up and down through the tent. All in all, I didn’t get much sleep. In fact I was quite happy to crawl out of it in the morning.

And this is what I saw. Made it all worth it. The day was filled with wonderful scenery, so here’s another view.
