POTD: Please Don't Climb Uluru

From 2018 03 21 Alice Springs

Today's photo-of-the-day is from Uluru (aka Ayer's Rock). It shows the track by which countless tourists have climbed to the top of the rock. Traditional owners have put up signs asking tourists to respect native law and culture by not climbing, but climbing is not outright prohibited...yet. The Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park Board of Management has decided to close the climb to the top of Uluru on October 26, 2019. But don't rush to climb before that date. How about just respecting the local culture which holds Uluru sacred.
