Towering 1,142 feet above the table-flat eastern reaches of the Great Victoria Desert, the island mountain of Uluru, commonly known as Ayres Rock, has long been on my bucket list of places to visit. It is sacred ground of the Pitjantjatjara people and access is now heavily restricted, but when Ned traveled to Uluru in the ’80s, you could walk, drive, and camp anywhere.
