An American in Australia:
The Anangu guides who lead walking tours throughout Kata Tjuta National Park to lookouts, caves, Aboriginal art sites and rock pools taught us about the complex ecosystem of the desert, which is now suffering due to desertification. It was hot walking the trails but dry as the temps range from 59 degrees at night to 95 during the day. Las muchachas loved hearing the Aboriginal dream stories; they learned how to identify plants, animal tracks and how to throw boomerangs, but most importantly, to respect the significance of the cultural icons.
