Travels with the Winnie: Day 32

The Olgas and another Urulu sunset

Another day in this beautiful landscape. The Olgas, which are quite beautiful at a distance, seemed to become more ordinary as we got really close to them. We stopped at a lookout.

Somehow this doesn’t capture the view as well as I thought it would.

We didn’t go very far into the gorge here. I remembered this place from our last visit
Uluru before sunset (1 of 1)
After a visit to the Cultural Centre, a bit late in the day for me to take much interest, we went to the usual place to view the sunset on Urulu. This is just before sunset with only the rock in the light
Uluru after sunset (1 of 1)
And this is after sunset when the rock is bronze and the sky changes colour

The landscape as a whole is very beautiful, with very interesting and beautiful trees and plants. I realise that the experience is very different in the heat of summer, but I couldn’t help feeling that the people who live here must feel extremely blessed by all of this beauty. Urulu is truly awsome and the setting does much to enhance the overall effect.
