One Great Adventure at the Blue Mountains

Here's another look back at my travels in Australia, the Land Down Under.

One weekend my brother-in-law told us to get ready for another fun-filled adventure. I wasn't aware that we are going to the BLUE MOUNTAINS and  THREE SISTERS or even if I am aware, I have no idea what to expect. So off we go on a long distance driving up where lush greeneries are plenty. I didn't know that it will require a lot of walking so I wasn't able to wear a rubber shoes that time but my attire was comfortable enough.

The Greater Blue Mountains Area is listed on November 29, 2000 as one of the World Heritage Area by UNESCO. There are lots of activities that you can do while at the Blue Mountains like rock climbing, walking down or nature walks at Three Sisters, canyoning, and more.Blue Mountains NSW Australia 1
It was cold and foggy when we got there but that doesn't stop us from exploring Blue Mountains National Park. We had our photos taken at the view deck where we can see Blue Mountains and Three Sisters Sandstone rock formation.

It was so windy when arrived at the The Three Sisters 'bridge. I always hold on to the grills because for fear that I might be blown away like the hat of my niece. It's a once in a lifetime adventure for me and my niece, Micah.
