blue mountains, the three sisters and seeing a little joey!!!
i have just returned from the mountains and i am in absolute awe. It is one of the most beautiful places taht I have ever been.
seeing the three sisters standing together overlooking the rest of the mountains and embracing the space around me, made me feel an inexplainable sense of peace.
I shoudl explain -the three sisters are 3 rock formations that stand together. the story about their formation comes from aborginal folklore. The story is that the father of the daughters went away into the mountains and a mounster came to attack his daughetrs. Before the mounster reached the daughetrs the father managed to turn his daughetrs into stone to protect them using a magic wand. but then he got chased by the monster and dropped the wand and to this day he is still looking for it to change them back to humans.
i had decided to stay in the mountains for a few days as it vwas one of my must sees while i was in auz. i had also been experiencing withdrawal effects from not seeing any mountains such i have been here!
however since i had booked the trip there had been bush fires and i was nervous of still going! but i was not told not to go by my travel agency and had been looking forward to the trip all week! anyhow it all worked out fine -all i saw was some distant smoke and a few fire engines. also went to the Jevolen caves and these natural formations were amazing. they are underground and they are the most unsual shapes and colours. because of the bush fires alot of people were afraid of going and so there was a small party of us. we managed to be able to access a cave that is rarley shown because of this whcih was very special. i cant explain everything atht i saw that weekend otherwise i would be here all day but my best memory seeing the three sisters at night, lite up, with bats sweeping accross them and the ambers of the fire in the distance. i could defintely live here!!!
