Snow in the Blue Mountains

We awoke this morning to a winter wonderland! Snow had fallen overnight, closing some roads over the mountains and giving some excited children a ‘snow day’. After breakfast we searched for an ‘indoor’ activity for today, and came up with the Jenolan Caves. Setting off late morning meant that the roads were cleared or passable. The 75km trip was through snow edged roads, and ended with an 11km switchback down the mountainside. But the effort was worth it. The caves were stunning, and the stalactite and stalagmite formations were exquisite. A trip to the Oberon Dam completed our last full day in the Blue Mountains. Down to Sydney tomorrow – where the wind is howling and the surf is ‘damaging’ according to the weather report.
