Thanks to my computer savvy husband, I can actually share a small part of our adventure with you. Richard has his laptop and has managed to tear himself away from it so I can satisfy my blogging urges.
No wonder inland Australia is called the 'red' centre.
We have walked miles, and climbed enormous heights. I have taken sooooo many photos of red rocks, chasms, gorges, etc. that it will be difficult to choose, so will only give you a small sample until I get home.
Naturally the most important places we've visited must be included. Uluru (previously Ayers Rock) is a very sacred area to the local indigenous people. Climbing the rock is discouraged, but that doesn't stop the most intrepid, young, and fit tourists from giving it a go. Mostly they are foreign tourists, as Australians are a little more sensitive to the wishes of the local people.
Another important sacred site is Kata Tjuta (previously the Olgas).
Leaving one of my favourites 'til last.... this photo emphasises the absolutely amazing colours of the landscape.
Until I get more computer time, this will have to do. Stay tuned.
