There are these moments when Nature just makes you go silent. The moment you step on to a lookout and everywhere around you rock formations drop for hundreds of meters, clouds are passing, the sun is painting shapes on to the surrounding plateaus and you just stop thinking for a little while. The moment a massive thunderstorm enters a valley, mist starts growing out of it and it’s as if Nature is making clear who the boss man is. It feels pretty good. The Blue Mountains provide some of these moments and i’ve spent the last days exploring these ‘hills’ (as my friend who lives up there calls them). I’ve had rapid weather changes, from burning sun to blasting thunderstorms and had my first days on the left side of the road with rain and fog making it a real experience. I visited Wendworth Falls, Katoomba and Blackheath, walked to the Pulpit Rock lookout and drove down to Megalong Valley for an awesome free camping spot and to walk on the Six Foot Track. Somebody i met at the camp site in the valley told me that after realising the world was to big to explore in a lifetime he had realised New South Wales was too, and that recently it struck him: the Blue Mountains are too. The Natural Park goes on and on and on… you can walk for days and it’s beautiful. Worth every curve and i’ll be back someday with more time for a long bush walk. Next stop, Jervis Bay and this is where i am writing this post from. There might be work here (and good things of course). Below, my take on the “hills” (including a selfie, since that’s kind of a trend right now).
