Mother and Joey Kangaroo specially invented to be able to live in this small area. Their digestive system is particular. They never need to leave this place despite lack of water. They spend their days sleeping in the small caves at the bottom of the rocks. I was lucky to see them. It was only because i was on my pushy and was able to leave the site at the last moment before sunset that i got to see these two. Others would probably come out later but by day, you don't see any kangaroos or much other wildlife around here. Its just too hot - well in summer but they seem to do the same things all year around.

View from the sand dunes viewing platform some kilometres away. The Nat Parks makes these platforms to keep us silly tourists off the land which is fragile and they are trying to get it back in shape. This year i heard the country it was looking the best it had in many years. It certainly was lovely although this pic probably doens't show it off to its best. These trees have an interesting story too but more on that later perhaps.

About 55km from Uluru but still in the national park. These wonderful pile of rocks were formerly known as The Olgas and now go by their aboriginal name.

I spent two nights in their vicinity, just outside the national park boundary as there is no camping here.

Tulpje Ah yes, we went in 2010 and it was also particularly green back then. I loved Kata Tjuta.
