Meeting the Rock

Today pilgrims saw Uluru up close for the very first time. After an early start to beat the heat of a central Australian sun, we traveled the 10 minute journey from Yulara campsite to the Rock. It was awe-inspiring to come face to face with the rock. It’s huge! So much bigger than it ever…
