On this trip we visited what has been called the "Deepest Canyon in the Blue Mountains". None of us had visited this canyon before - we had an interesting trip. It was a wet cold weekend.

Party - Rik, Michael, Rob and Dave

Above - On the way out to our canyon we looked into the interesting creek - we climbed down into it for a better look.

Unfortunaetly - time was running out - and we had to move fast before it got dark - so I didn't get too many photos in the canyon.

Above - in the late afternoon - we found this nice campcave. We had not had lunch - so we had a late lunch and decided to camp in it. It was a great place especially since it rained a lot overnight.

Above - We then climbed out of a major gorge via a pass near here.
