Notes on the Geography of Australia: Uluru/Ayers Rock: Photo 37

world pictures Australia: Uluru/Ayers Rock

Giles wrote that the appearance of these mountains "was most wonderful and grotesque. It seemed like five or six enormous pink hay-stacks, leaning for support against one another, with open cracks or fissures between, which came only about half-way down its face. I am sure this is one of the most extraordinary geographical features on the face of the earth, for, as I have said, it is composed of several enormous rounded stone shapes, like the backs of several monstrous kneeling pink elephants." See Ernest Giles, Australia Twice Traversed, 1889, vol. 2, p. 11.
