uluru finally

Ayers Rock - Uluru
Red Centre, Northern Territory, Australia
April 2016
A major bucket-list moment - I have waited years to get here. And none too soon! As beautiful as she is from a distance - she is most spectacular up close. As ancient and magical as the legends would suggest. Both Uluru and the nearby Kata Tjuta formation (the Olgas) are of sacred to the Pitjantjatjara Anangu people.

Interesting to note that this sacred red rock and the sacred pink granite mountains of the Wichitas in Oklahoma are the same age (550 million years old) and about the same height above sea level (2600 and 2800 feet respectively).
