uluru 3 - sunset

This was a busy day. After the early start to see Uluru, climbing up Kata Tjuta and the scenic flight; we returned to Uluru.

Because of the morning's rain, the climb was closed.  It was hoped that the climb might be open the following day, so we were driven round to see the route of the climb.  That immediately put off quite a few people - as it really is a tough climb.

Then it was off to the sunset viewing area, for champagne (OK, Australian sparkiling wine) and nibbles.
