Easter Island Day 4: Sunrise

For our last day on the island, we still had the jeep and decided to use it to go see a sunrise over the large Tongariki ahu. We got up very early, I can't remember the exact time but suffice it to say that the roosters hadn't even thought about starting to crow yet, and drove across the island one last time to get in position for the sunrise. We were not the only people to have the idea, but everyone was quiet and respectful and it was a beautiful experience.
We got one last look at the Rano Raraku crater (in case you don't remember that was where they made the moai on the left side of the crater) and headed back to turn in the jeep and return to the mainland after an incredible few days on the island.
