Theme Day: Pink

Taken in my garden today

When thinking about pink, at this time of year it is hard to go past the blossom that is appearing in streets and gardens all around the mountains.

Theme day: Street Lamps

In 1913 the citizens of Lawson erected a street lamp as a memorial to mark the centenary of the crossing of the Blue Mountains by Blaxland, Lawson and Wentworth in 1813.

With the passing of another 100 years in May 2013 the citizens of Lawson again gathered to celebrate the crossing. The party reenacting the crossing unveiled a bust of Lawson in the park where the street lamp still stands -- you can see it in the background.

For more images of Street Lamps visit City Daily Photo Theme Day.

Cliff Drive, Katoomba 7 of 7

As Jim commented the other day it was a beautiful autumn day, perfect for a picnic or stroll in the bush.

The Cliff Drive breaks at this point and starts again a little further along winding its way from Katoomba to Leura.  I love this drive and take it whenever I can, even when it's out of my way.  I hope you have enjoyed this quick peak at its delights.

Around the corner you come across Scenic World, a popular tourist destination with it scenic thrill rides. I didn't get any shots on this trip but I have posted them before -- the Scenic Railway, the Skyway  and Cableway.

Also this vicinity there a couple of Christian convention centres.

Cliff Drive, Katoomba 5 of 7

At key points along the drive there are lookouts.  This one gives you a look at the iconic Three Sisters without having to fight the crowds at Echo Point.

A mountain escape.  One of the many tourist accommodations in this town.  I can imagine myself sitting on the verandah enjoying the view.

Cliff Drive, Katoomba 3 of 7

Here we go, a look at just some of cliffs that are all along this drive. No wonder it's a tourist drawcard.  I never tire of these views.

Cliff Drive, Katoomba 2 of 7

Over the road from the golf course is the ever present bushland and already the promise of the cliffs that have been drawing tourists since the 1800s.    This is very much a tourist drive.
