I can’t even explain how I felt to be in the presence of magical sacred Uluru. I was in awe. We all were. The rock changes with the colour of the light. The impossible red and green combination was amazing. Everything was very green as they had rain just 10 days before we arrived. I marveled at the variations of greens that lay before me.

Cedric and Tiffany wanted their photo with Uluru too!
As we walked around we found the was the only area that still holds water. In times past (and maybe present), when sacred rituals were held by the indigenous people this was the area that they would come to gather water from. We were very lucky to see it with water in it. It was a still quiet shaded place.
We did see wildlife but not a lot. There were a range of birds. These were new to us! They are very cool.
The last night we saw this lizard. He stayed very still and changed from green to camouflage with the ground colour. I was right on top of him taking photos well he stayed frozen in place. We left him and he scurried on very happily.
Congratulations to Wendy Barrett of Perth, Australia who won the third set of cards since we left Yellowknife in early March. I did indeed mail them from Uluru! Wendy worked there many moons ago. Check out her blog post about her experience.
Our time in Australia is drawing to a close. I have another post or two in me before we leave. We feel like we have been here for months with the amount we have seen and done.
Remember to comment and you may well receive a set of my cards in the mail! On to the 100th commenter! 😉
