And for the astute observer, Wizard should have put "flora" not "fauna" :oops:

It is indeed a form of sagebrush, Wile E.

I, however, am not a botanist's bootstrap, so I do not know how much more assistance I can provide in this regard.

I can tell you that Uluru (indigenous name for Ayer's Rock) is 863 m (2,831 ft) high, which is about the same as where I live thousands of kilometres away.

Made of arkose which is like a sandstone but rich in feldspar, and would have been eroded from a granite mountain.

Estimated age 530 to 550 million years.

Thanks, wiz! Australia is an ancient continent I'd like to see firsthand.
I find it fascinating even from afar.
I have heard these are tastey!
