    Thanks for the memory.....I climbed to the top of the rock back in the late '60's, well before the aboriginals reclaimed their land and the sacredness of this "monolith". Somehow I think it's shrunk a bit since then.

    Beautiful shot of Uluru. It's such a sacred place, and should not be profaned by being climbed.
