Party - Rik, Wendy, Rob, Dan, Sharon, Brett, Dave

A long weekend is a good time to head out to visit some more remote canyons. Rik organised a trip into the Northern Blue Mountains. We visited a canyon on Saturday and another on Sunday. On Monday, we walked back to the cars.

Above - this canyon was very long and alternated in wet and dry sections

Above - Our way was blocked by a tiger snake. A large one too. But it slunk away and hid in a hole.

Above - ahead was a tunnel

After visiting the canyon, we set up our camp. Early on Sunday morning - we had a storm. It was too wet to canyon - so we sleep in. After breakfast I wandered over to a nearby creek to take some photos.

After lunch, the rain had died down to light drizzle and the creeks had gone down. So we headed off to visit another canyon. The photos are continued on this page.
