And here we are at the end of the track. Yes the track stops at a cliff edge like this with an expansive view across the valley to similar cliffs. It's unfenced so I wasn't going near the edge but climbers do. There is a tiny white dot towards the bottom of the cliff in the foreground ... it's a climber hanging from a rope. I'll show you a closer look at him in my next post.
Even with photographing flowers to distract me I am getting tired. When will this track end? It's also worth noting that all of the photos in my last post were taken in landscape like this (which is typical of Blue Mountains ridge tops) ... at a distance it looks unpromising but up close and in detail there is an amazing diversity of plants.
We decided to have lunch at Mt Tomah, the cold climate botanic gardens which are on Bells Line of Road. However, to work up an appetite we took the walk out to Walls Lookout which goes off that road. The last time I did this walk, in September 2007, there were few flowers Bush fires had gone through earlier that year and it seems they had not had time to reestablish themselves because on this occasion there were lots to delight me. I think this lovely pink flower which was prevalent all along the track is a Boronia.
One from my archives for theme day and to add to my weekend people series. This photo was taken at Portland markets. (Portland is a town west of the mountains). The gentleman was selling fruit directly from his orchard and it was fresh and delicious. Click here to view thumbnails for all participants
