Cox’s River (Out and About in the Australian Bush)

Cox's River on the Six Foot Track

I could never tire of this part of the Blue Mountains.

This section is on the six-foot walking track, which winds its way from Katoomba to the Jenolan Caves.

I often do the 45 kilometre walk in a day, a long day given the mountainous terrain!

And I’ll be doing this walk frequently over the next few months, lucky me!

You’ve just got to love the Blue Mountains…

    Wow! For a minute, I thought you were talking about the Blue Ridge Mountains here in Virginia.
    But then, I realized you probably were not walking “Out and About” here.
    Looking at your photo though, your Blue and my Blue Ridge mountains are similar in appearance.
    I posted a picture back in November (in ‘Natural Haiku’) that shows water running slowly over the rocks up in the Blue Ridge. Now you made me remember….what a great walk through nature that was. When it gets warmer again, I will go back.

      Oh…wait….that was a post in August! I knew it was during the summer that I walked up there. I remember the Cicada’s humming in the trees.

      My photo was taken about where you (someone 😉 ) is standing…

      Soon as it cools off a touch I’ll do a day walk from Katoomba to the Caves…

      Is it a new brochure or something???

    Is this part of the Blue Cow Mountains that we skied (sp?) on many years ago?

      No, quite a distance from the Blue Mountains, although all forming part of the Great Dividing Range. Blue Cow is in the Snowy Mountains region probably about 400-kilometres to the south of Sydney, whilst the Blue Mountains is about 80-kilometres to the west of Sydney.

      Mind you, the area might get a dusting of snow in winter, but it doesn’t last. The Blue Mountains is my climbing and hiking playground.

    45 km in one day! To quote Baz, “Strewth!”
