Once we set our GPS for the Blue Mountains of Australia for a hike, we were on our way out of Sydney for our Australian explore. The driving on the left took a little while to get used to, as it always does. The bicycles that shared the highway with us also demanded some extra attention. The time change from East Coast USA to Sydney was catching up to me, at sixteen hours difference.
The scenery was just beautiful as we drove along with the mountains in the distance. They were named for their amazing color which comes from the eucalyptus trees and we could see why. The drive to the entrance was only a few hours at most, but after a very long few days of travel, we had an early dinner and went to our hotel for the night.
Starting out before sunrise, our first stop was Wentworth Falls. The fog was thick and the weather cool, but we still enjoyed a long morning hike into the forest when the sun burned it off just a bit. The hike itself was easy to moderate and took about 2 hours. The scenery, though, could have made this a full day hike just to enjoy nature.
