It’s the first bit of vacation I’ve had all year, and we’re ticking off a Bucket List item by spending a few days at Ayers Rock. This is the deepest into Australia we’ve ever gone; into the Northern Territories where oddly the time difference is 30 minutes, not an hour! We’re several kilometers from Uluru but tomorrow we get a big dose of The Rock, both at 6AM for “Desert Awakenings” and then in the evening for the Sounds of Silence dining experience with Uluru in the distance. Check out how RED the soil is here! The trees, shrubs, and other types of plant life are very different from New South Wales, obviously!
