Blue mountains

From Fort rock looking into Kanimbla Valley

Con and I are planning an overnight hiking trip in the Megalong valley sometime soon, and just to test my fitness we did a short and interesting day walk from Blackheath.  We loaded our packs with our camping gear and pretty much what we’d need for camping overnight and a couple of days tucker – just so we weren’t kidding ourselves by just taking a small day pack. Our packs were a reasonable 12 or 13 kg each and probably would be just a little more when we add a frypan and a couple of other things we left out.

I’m looking forward to heading down into the valley and spending a night or two in the bush really soon… and in the meantime here’s some more pictures from this shakedown walk.
