Canyoning in the Blue Mountains

30 May

That’s me. Tied onto a rope, wrapped around a tree, lowering myself down a rocky overhang into some cold, cold water. It’s called canyoning and it’s SO MUCH FUN! It never used to be my natural compulsion to involve myself in adventure activities, but the more I am exposed to, the more I love. It’s amazing how many people have asked me if I was scared and, truth be told, I wasn’t one bit. Weird.

The canyon we did was Jugglers Canyon in the Blue Mountains. Tim and Chey from Blue Mountains Adventure Company took us out and they were awesome. Five abseils, muddy wet shoes, and a big walk later, we got back to Katoomba with  not much left in our tanks.

Next stop is this
