A ridiculously busy period at work was followed by a family holiday to the Blue Mountains - (@Noush) Chris' neighbourhood I believe..
The Blue Mountains National Park is just west of Sydney and offers some great sight-seeing and hiking.

Do you remember if climbing was permitted on the 3 Sisters when you visited Steve?
One of the guys on my wife's side of the family reckons he mounted um, summited the middle sister one summer a few years back! :silent:
No climbing permitted these days though.

^^^I lived in Cabramatta from ‘67-‘72 but don’t recall seeing any climbers on our visits. I would imagine that they did back then though? When we visited, the viewing platform was a bit rudimentary if I recall and there were a few dumped cars below it? You could just about see them in the trees below. The wrecked cars are my overriding memory, to be honest.

I don’t recall that bridge over to the first peak though. I guess that wasn’t there back then?

A lovely day for flying a Kite! :)

I do like going out for a walk, looking up at the sky and seeing birds of prey soaring overhead.

Quite often it’s not even necessary to leave the house to see one fly just above the rooftop of a neighbouring house.

Ah, that's shameful isn't it..wrecked car bodies at the bottom of a cliff next to an Aussie icon..!?
No.1 son and I hiked over to the bridge to the first sister .... it wasn't super new but not all that old either so I am guessing it wasn't there when you were. The bridge came to a dead end - no way around to the middle sister but there was a good view. (No car bodies that we could see thankfully)

Nearby we passed a set of stairs (so steep they were practically a ladder) down to the valley floor but we didn't attempt them as we were running out of daylight.
