Snapshots from a traveler #15

It's rare to find Uluru in your side view mirror.

My side view mirror usually only shows the passenger door of my green car, or Route 8, or the random Canada goose who has crossed the road behind me. What I don't typically see are awe-inspiring monoliths and kilometer after kilometer of semi-arid Central Australian desert.

Our recent vacation to Australia was such a massive and awesome endeavor -- and the post-holiday transition back to everyday life so hectic and harried -- that the whole trip seems like a dream. Looking at this photo even makes it feel like more of a mirage.
