Mukurtu is the soak where my grandfather passed away. My grandfather was travelling through this country. We were playing here when he passed away early in the morning. The yellow lines are the Tali (sandhills). The blue lines are the jukurrpa (dreamtime) lines travelling through Manyjilyjarra country.
