continuing the walk around Uluru ... just some snapshots along the way to show the varying formations
what's that?! Someone climbing up there?! Keen. Not only would they be getting buffeted by the winds, but it's considered nowadays, to be disrespectful (to the indigenous owners), and it is requested that you not climb Uluru anymore. However, the safety rail fencing from earlier days when it was the touristy thing to do, is still in place. It would be quite some arduous hike! I wonder how far they went?
I like doing it at ground level, around the base...I can take in the trees and other botanicals
this is one of the earlier opportunities to be so close
it's so interesting to observe the differing textures, craters and such, which aren't evident from the distant views
tempted to stop a while...?
reminder that this is what we're walking around, Uluru. Yes ... there's more to come.
