This is just one example of the rock drawing left by the aboriginal people. Each figure has a special meaning and the local people still perform rites and ceremonies at the rock that are kept secret.

The path around Uluru had many signs and spots to experience the unique spiritualness of the place. They also had numerous spots to just relax--including these benches made from the natural woods of the area.

The light hitting Uluru changes the color and texture of the rock's surface--it really was interesting.

The caves and holes in the sandstone of Uluru Rock gave it an interesting presentation. The caves all have aboriginal stories about how they came to be.

Sunset at Uluru Rock. We were not sure we wanted to visit Uluru Rock--after all it is just a rock. But some Aussie friends advised us to see it , and we agree--it is a 'once-in-a-lifetime' experience. There is definately a spiritual feeling about the rock.
