The Ruined Castle Walk - Blue Mountains
|Click on the photos for Larger Images.
|It started out a short walk, but when it
rained, then hailed, with loud thunderclaps we somehow made it into a
rather long walk, time wise. We sheltered under rocks for awhile,
the thunder intensifying as it echoed around the mountains!
Overall it is a good walk, just try for a sunny day, please.
Right: Happy walkers start out!
|The Rain Starts
|The clouds move in!
|The Hail begins!
|Lunch, between rain showers.
|Orchids jump out to greet us.
|So does a Cicada.
|The "Ruined Castle" is just above.
|We were starting back, when the hail started
again and this time with THUNDER.
We all rushed back to the safety of the rock overhang. And Waited!
|The end and the Sun somehow emerges again to make our ride home easier.
