    Blackheath and the Grand Canyon

    April 9, 2017 in Australia

    Rising early to get the best of the day, we went to the Grand Canyon - a circular walk that took us down a cleft in the cliffs towards the valley floor then explored the huge gulleys filled with ferns and other rainforest foliage. Incredible views and landscape, expecting dinosaurs to still be in there! One of the best walks we've done on our travels.
    Continued to xx viewpoint where Charles Darwin had admired the view (strangely his name has been scratched off the info boards, possibly by someone who thought his evolutionary ideas could never be right??).
    As we left a storm was rolling in, so hastily drove to a camp site in Lithgow and pitched the tent just as the rain came on and thunder overhead. A huge downpour meant the tent was surrounded by 2 inches of water and rising - quick decamp and repitch to safety on higher ground.
    Met an Aussie family who we spent the evening chatting to and sharing their dinner. So far everyone we've met have been so friendly and share the same sarcastic humour!
