Weekend Getaway – Blue Mountains

Another trip to the Blue Mountains.  This time, to take in the Jenolan Caves.

We mega-failed by forgetting to bring a real camera along on this spectacular tour.  So this is as good as it gets.  Whoops.

The rest of the weekend was more photographically successful – as we enjoyed the scenery at our B&B.

We ended the weekend with a hike in Wentworth Falls through the National Pass.

Fun Fact of the Day (courtesy of Lonely Planet):

The slate-coloured haze that gives the mountains their name comes from a fine mist of oil exuded by the huge eucalyptus gums that form a dense canopy across the landscape of deep, often-inaccessible valleys and chiseled sandstone outcrops.
