...it was mid afternoon as our coach arrived at this lookout for afternoon tea. Always enjoyed not only the comeraderie over a quick cuppa and bite to eat, but seeing brand new scenes like this, Mount Connor.
Not only were we to see Mt. Connor, but "across the road" we were to discover another amazing view. Climbing uphill some to reach the top, but I couldn't get over quite how red the sand was there!
It was windy, and the grasses blowing, I wasn't sure I'd be able to capture them properly, and kind of waited for that 'lull' before pressing the shutter.

they must be tough! But a little further over the ridge and next ...
we see this amazing view. 1032 sq. km of salt pan/lake; known as Lake Amadeus
no water - just dry salt
We were on our way next, another 50 kms. to reach Uluru, which I've already posted before this here when we arrived for sunset over the big rock. And then there was the big walk around Uluru the following day here.
It was on the 21st June when I started posting on my fabulous journey to N.T. here and there's probably only two more posts I can squeeze out before my red-dirt Australia header will be taken down. I so enjoyed this trip, that country is AMAZING, and know from your comments that this wonderful part of Australia has been of great interest to those of you who visit this blog also.
Thank you always for coming back, and especially for your comments; it makes 'blogging' itself so rewarding to know someone is watching out for your posts and dropping by every now and then.
