Today we begin a tour of beautiful Mt Wilson. This very special village is tucked away in its own secluded space away from the bigger tourist towns. It has no shops but plenty of life because unlike other parts of the mountains it has rich volcanic soil and high rainfall, perfect for both lush natural rainforest and grand exotic gardens.
And it's perfect for romance especially at this time of year when the gardens are turning on their autumnal splendour.
There are photographs at every turn, we are going to be here a while.
Have a rest beside the beautiful Blue Lake made this colour from the dissolved limestone. Though the caves were apparently not so restful for Luke White, a cattle thief who spent a night in the cave after a drinking binge, and claimed he had seen the devil himself charge through on a coach drawn by six horses -- hence the Devil's Coach House (to answer Julie's question on the previous post).
Limestone formation, Imperial Cave, Jenolan Caves According to wordnetweb a statue is a a sculpture representing a person or animal. Now I know this isn't a person or animal but pay a visit to Jenolan Caves and you'd be amazed at the fanciful creatures the guides see in the stalagmites and stalactites. And it's a great lead into our next Blue Mountains adventure which is to Jenolan Caves. Today city daily photographers are interpreting the theme Statues.
