The Three Sisters, Katoomba

After finally throwing off my cold, though I still have my annoying cough, combined with fantastic weather, I decided to take a ride from Katoomba to Penrith. It was a relatively easy ride. Though, being quite out of form, some short uphill stretches were quite a challenge. But you have to start somewhere!

Here are a few photos that I took today.

Katoomba – The-Three-Sisters
Bullaburra – a new carriageway all to myself
Hazelbrook – new overhead footway
Bulls Camp – a rest stop

Blaxland Macca’s

After leaving Blaxland, I didn’t stop again to take any further photographs. Being near the shortest day of the year, and without lights on my bike, I needed to get back home before it became dark.

They are! Suffice to say, they’re probably the biggest tourist attraction in the Blue Mountains. 🙂
