The end of another hot day at Uluru......48°C.
Uluru (English pronunciation: /ˌuːləˈruː/), also known as Ayers Rock /ˌɛərz ˈrɒk/ and officially gazetted as Uluru / Ayers Rock,is a large sandstone rock formation in the southern part of the Northern Territory in central Australia. It lies 335 km (208 mi) south west of the nearest large town, Alice Springs, 450 km (280 mi) by road.

Kata Tjuta and Uluru are the two major features of the Uluṟu-Kata Tjuṯa National Park. Uluru is sacred to the Anangu, the Aboriginal people of the area. The area around the formation is home to an abundance of springs, waterholes, rock caves, and ancient paintings and one needs 2-5 hours to walk around it.
Uluru is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

I climbed Uluru in the early 70's and it was a tough climb . I don't think it is allowed today ?
