Weekly Travel Theme: Horizon 8-17-14

On the horizon are The Olgas (aka Kata Tjuta, meaning “many heads”) which are a collection of massive rounded rock domes located 25 miles to the west of Uluru (Ayers Rock) in the Northern Territory. Beyond Kata Tjuta lies the vast deserts of Australia . Kata Tjuta is not one single large rock but rather a system of domed rocks, gorges and valleys. The 36 domes that make up Kata Tjuta cover an area of 8.37 square  miles with the highest point being Mount Olga at 3,497 feet above sea level, or approximately 1,791 feet above the surrounding plain.
