Driving away from Kings Canyon with some good memories and a very sore ankle (thats when I did it) took us towards one of Australia's best know landmarks - Uluru - or Ayers Rock as it was called by the white explorers who thought that they had discovered it. They seemed not to notice that it already had a name, and had had one for may 45,000 years!
However, there is a trap awaiting the unwary. Well before Uluru can bee seen another flat topped landmark pops into view - its called Attila or Artilla or even Mount Conner. If you have never seen these kinds of landforms before I can see why they may confuse people. And to be honest, they only reason I was not fooled the first time I saw it was because I knew it was there. You can only gain access to Mount Conner of organised tours - so we just had to look from the road. I have to say its an impressive looking place.
After a bit more driving you arrive at Uluru - and the views from the road it don't really do justice. As this is supposed to be my "photo-blog" I wont say much more about this remarkable location, except that if you get the chance you should go there. This was my third visit and the impact was no less than the first time I saw it.
