Flag of Australia  ,
Friday, November 30, 2007

It was "only" a four hour drive to Yulara, the town outside the aboriginal park where Uluru is.  Uluru is a huge, giant rock in the middle of Australia that rises dramatically out of the flat bush around it.  It's an impressive site and very sacred in the aboriginal culture.  And, more importantly, I think it may have been in Crocodile Dundee.

We set up camp when we arrived.  Sam was messing around with some stuff, so we missed the cultural center.  But, we did make it out to see Uluru during sunset.  Actually, we almost didn't see it because Sam didn't want to pay the over-priced entrance fee to the park, but how can you come all this way and not see it?  Oh yeah, we had enough time before sunset to walk a short trail around the rock, which was cool.  Afterwards, I made some dinner and went for a swim before going to sleep.

Woke up early the next morning to go see Uluru during sunrise and visit the cultural center with Janna.  Soon after, we were back on the road, heading south to Coober Pedy.
