Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park
Mala walk to Kantju Gorge

Following the lead of +Ana Andres, I finally got around to submitting a few photo’s for approval (a requirement of our media permits) from the time I spent in November on the trip to Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park with +Ana Andres +Josie Ruth +Jason Ruth +Stephen Godfrey

Uluru holds tremendous spiritual significance for the local Anangu people. Many of the areas are sacred sites and photography is forbidden. The Mala Walk, is a ceremonial area that is open to the public and follows the north-west side of Uluru.

We took a  Ranger guide along a shaded track, stopping to discuss Tjukurpa (Aboriginal law) stories associated with Mala ancestors, joint management, rock art, traditional Anangu lifestyle, history and the environment.

I loved how the light was reflecting the warmth of the sun on the side of the cave along the track and managed to grab this shot before the light changed.
