Today was one of those lovely autumn days that Sydney is known for - cold nights, crisp mornings and clear blue skies - just the day to go for a drive to the Blue Mountains. Off we set and along the way I found some of Percy and Petunia's relatives on the side of the Great Western highway. As you can see in the first photo a couple of uncles are busy supervising the roadworks taking place whilst in the second photo an aunt and two cousins are eagerly watching with interest.
After taking some photos of Percy's "family" we set off to Katoomba and you can see why they are called the Blue Mountains from the following photo.
I would call this "survival of the fitest". While walking one of the tracks along to the Threee Sisters I spotted this tree growing out of the sandstone rock face and I wonder what lives in this "house". I was not going to put my hand in to find out!!!
And of course the highlight of going to the mountains in autumn has to be seeing the beautiful range of colour in the trees.
