    Kata Tjuta

    One of the last views we had of Kata Tjuta before heading to Kings Canyon. The sand was so unbelievably red, looked almost otherworldly!

    Uluru cave

    Several places around the base of Uluru you can find little caves. This one I thought looked like rolling waves you see in surfing.

    holes in Uluru

    These holes in the rock are scars made by the spears of ancient warriors. All around the rock you find these places with different stories.

    The Olgas

    Some 50kms from Ayer's Rock but still part of the National Park (entrance ticket covers both) are the Olgas - a range of hills/rocks, unlike the single entity that is Ayer's Rock.

    The 2 hour climb had given us both blisters on our feet which was unfortunate as the very next thing we had planned was the 6 mile walk around the base.

    However the main problem was with the incredibly strong winds that were blowing up the valleys from the other side (presumably the reason that they closed the climb).

    This is where a lot of people turn back probably because there is no chain along the second half of the climb.

    The climb seemed never ending as the varying slope prevented us from ever seeing very far ahead. We eventually reached a flat area at the end of the chain where many people were resting.

    This was slightly worrying but as they didn't call anybody back we assumed that it was just a precaution against weather that was forecast for later on in the day.

    However, it was open the following day and, although I felt guilty going against the owners' wishes, the steady stream of people already climbing made me give in to my irrational desire to go up.

    The climb was actually closed on the day that we arrived due to high winds. They also close it whenever the temperature gets too high - which happens every day not long after dawn during the summer!
