Uluru to Kata Tjuta (a.k.a. The Olgas)

Early morning start to head out before sunrise, to hike around the base of Uluru on a 12 km circle route. It's very flat so wasn't difficult for anyone. To see it up close was incredible. There are remains of waterfalls that created rivulets running down the rock. Would be spectacular after a rain. The hike included caves, rock drawings, and waterholes. Learning about all the stories of the ancients added to the spiritual essence of the place.

After a short rest back at the hotel and lunch we were picked up again for our journey to see the sunset at Kata Tjuta. The fascinating geological history was explained by the guide/driver. Once again, the scene was wonderful accompanied by munchies and drinks.

An early night tonight as tomorrow's excursion will begin with a 5:40 pick up - getting earlier all the time. Getting harder considering I'm suffering from a bad cold, but there's NO way I'm going to miss this!

That photo of Kata Tjuta is unworldly, I love it! I guess it's a little to late to change my mind about coming with you guys. Take care of yourself Donna and get better soon (don't push yourself too much) Love Don
