 There was water every where here, small creeks and collections running through the rocks.  The last time I was here the walking track  went between these rocks, but this time we had to walk over the tree to the right. 
The original walking track under water.

This creek running full of life.

The look out



This creek ran dominated the base at the bake of the rocks.
This area was so silent, just the wind and birds could be heard.

Vast plant life along the creek.

This area sat at the bottom of the valley and side walls.

Small bridges protect the vegetation and the people.

A view back from the look out.

More beauty.

This is the view of the walk from a distance. 

On the way in.

Life at Ularu

Me trying to keep my camera and me dry.

I am finally finding the time to post some photos on my blog, “the other blog that is”, so am really happy to be doing that.  There are so many aspects to life that make it interesting and walking around Ularu and through Katajuta is one of those special things I have loved, twice now.  

Once in really hot weather when everything was a lot dryer and now in the rain, with water and life in abundance. 

The rock is a special place for me, I absolutely love it.  I will go back again for sure.  This time the weather was so cold and cloudy, getting pictures of the famous sun rises and sun sets didn’t happen, but the colors of the rock when water fell on it in different light were amazing.
As far as my weight is concerned, it is on its way down again.  Already lost 1kg and am loving the exercise.  

I have been spending less time in the gym and more time outside, now that the weather is changing.  I am loving the beach, walking a jogging on it is so rewarding and I feel great.  I am lucky enough to live just 4min drive from it or a 20 walk and at this time of the year it feels so healthy breathing in the beautiful see air. 

More on the exercise later, I am going to step it up this week, I feel the need to get the mind set really on the path.  Up to now I have allowed myself to take a little holiday from my major commitments and routine, having had my first set of nights in the past few days.  I have been in denial about the work commitment because I am a little burnt out, and it has affected my commitment to me in many ways.  One of the coping skills I developed in the past was to curl up and do nothing, which seemed to make me feel better, but it doesn’t anymore.  I do need recovery time sometimes, which I take, but I don’t allow it to take over for long.  Now its back on track, get into the plan.

Magnificent example of life.

 This is at the back of the rock, can be what you make it, but I see a face...

 So beautiful, I love walking around here, it changes at every turn.
Some of the plant life.
A world of its own.
The sun shining on the wet rock makes it look like snow.

Central Australia, Ularu and Katajuta in the rain.

This is a picture taken of Ularu (Ayres Rock) under a rain cloud.  It was awsome to see it during the rain.  So much water collects around the base and it changes color depending on how much sun gets through.

Absolutely amazing colors the rock takes on in the rain.   Looks fantastic close up. 

 So much water at the bottom of the rock.

It only took a light shower to create many streams of running water to run down into many places that became small pools or water beds.   The tadpoles were quite large, some pictured in the photo above.  Such life in abundance,  an amazing place in all seasons.
