Blue Mountains

Last week, I went out to the countryside with a couple of friends. On the way, we drove through the Blue Mountains, and made a couple of scenic stops. I hadn't been here in years!



Wentworth Falls.


The Three Sisters, a famous rock formation.



Hassans Walls lookout in Lithgow, the highest lookout in the Blue Mountains.


According to my friend, the countryside here was unusually green after all the rainfall. Australian countryside is usually more of a yellowy, dried out green.

  1. That is strangely green, particularly the second photo. It's been a weird couple of months for Sydney/NSW weather. Can't believe it was snowing in Lithgow last week.

    1. I'm not too big on hiking (anything more than half an hour will probably make me complain) so I don't know if I'll ever use the phrase hike porn haha!
