When my alarm went off at 5:45am I peeled myself out of the toasty sleeping bag. My first night in Uluru I had to cover my face I was so cold. Why was I sweating? Still sheltered in the car's warmth I laced up my Columbias. I prepared myself for the pre-dawn chill as I opened the car door. Why was it humid outside? Again, it was the coldest month of winter. Why did it feel like an Ohio summer?
