Australian Sunrise

Monday, June 1, 2009

Phenomenal, amazing, gorgeous, beautiful, spiritual, inspiring…

I’m not sure there are really any words to describe this morning’s experience at Uluru.  We had been disappointed the night before due to the fact there was no sunset on the rock.  Everyone was holding out hope for this morning and we weren’t disappointed.

The morning of course started out like all of our mornings - cloudy and overcast…even had a little drizzle.  (Drizzle – something else that rarely happens in Australia.)  Just as we were getting ready to leave Uluru, the sun peaked through the clouds.  I think the photos speak for themselves.  It was a morning we will remember forever.

The photo of the sun rising on Uluru is beautiful! What a great thing to have experienced in person. Everytime any of you see a photo of it somewhere, it will bring back a flood of memories, literally.
I think traveling the Outback and sleeping in swags agrees with all of you. OR maybe it was getting up at 5 a.m.?
Great looking group!

Wow - that is really cool! I was wondering why "waiting for the sunrise" was such a big deal - but now I see.
