Uluru

19 Sep

Uluru is a giant sandstone monolith over 340 metres high with a circumference of 9.4 km. Also known as Ayer’s Rock, it is the remains of a mountain that once stood in the center of Australia. It is certainly a place I would love to see and hike up, down and around.

Impressive in itself, it becomes even more beautiful when the rains fall and the runoff produces large waterfalls that delineate the erosion it has gone through over the centuries. You have to agree- nature is stunning.
