Kata Tjuta and the Valley of the Winds

About 25km west of Uluru lies the magnificent many heads of Kata Tjuta, an equally massive but very different rock formation. From a distance at sunrise they appear smooth but are quite different up close.dsc06471 dsc06475 dsc06452 dsc05976 dsc06560 dsc06570

The Valley of the Winds is the main walk possible, though it is closed when temperatures reach over 36C, so plan accordingly. Even early morning on a spring day it was pretty roasting for the last two thirds of the walk with little shade. It was worth it for some impressive sights though and some lovely flowers, not exactly what you expect in the middle of the red heart of Australia!dsc06589 dsc06575 dsc06596 dsc06616 dsc06625 dsc06542 dsc06505 dsc06512 dsc06541
