Blue Mountains - Leura Cascades to Katumba


Today was another new walking adventure.  I went to the Blue Mountains. 


What a terrific walk. I started in Leura and walked through town.  At the end of a road (and after reviewing the GPS on my phone), I took a chance and entered what "looked" like it might be a bushwalking path. I walked along a pretty wide path, which miraculously opened up near Leura Cascades. 





From there, I started walking along the Prince Henry CliffWalk towards Echo Point.

Below is a shot taken along the walk at a lookout point. This is looking down at Bridal Veil Falls.  When I go back, I'm going to make sure I have the time to walk along from Leura Cascades in the other direction so that I can walk down to the bottom and across back towards Karumba along the bottom of the bluffs in the bush!  There are several falls like this that I'm sure are even more impressive looking up! 


You can't really tell in the photo above, but those falls are well over 200 feet tall!  (If you look closely, you can see a couple people at the base!)


Above is the classic shot of 3 Sisters!  It was absolutely incredible!  (But the area where this is - very congested!)


Above is a captivating photo of the views across the expanse


Above is a shot of me at "Copelands Lookout".  


More beautiful views.

Overview of the hike!  I clocked it with my phone.  I walked a little over 10 miles.

Mixed Up Media Chix - Summertime Blog Hop!

I have a fun project to share today!  Very excited about this one.  I've been working on it for over a week and...well...it's still not completely done, but it's getting there!
I've done this for a super wonderful friend that is going through a bit of a rough time.  She needs encouragement, so I'm putting together a little art journal to let her know how special she is.
And while this is a special gift, it's also part of a really fun blog hop I'm participating in with the other Mixed Up Media Chix!   Follow along...You'll truly be inspired.
So, if you need to start at the beginning:

Big Birthday Celebration

Are you here having fun hopping along with 3GirlJAM in celebration of Julie's sister's big birthday year?  What a great little cyber party we're having!  (she's really a young thing, but she's having a great year)

Well, if not, you should be hopping along (I'll tell you why in a moment). There are some really wonderful birthday ideas from all of us on the design team...and including Julie's two girls, who are also having fun celebrating their aunt's birthday.

If you need to go back to the beginning, head over to the 3GirlJAM blog to get started.  Otherwise....


Here's my card in celebration her special year! I used blue crinkle ribbon from the newly released Red,White,Blue Bundle.It's such a nice shade of blue!  The white has bits of the red and blue in it (and I love the ribbon when it's like that)...and the red is also pretty awesome...like marachino cherries.  The little button in the center is from Pinque Peacock (love lady bugs!) and e…
