Just me and my moment of solitude in the canyons of the Blue Mountains. With so much to see and experience I sit with little sense of time passing around me. Luscious greens and pristine icy waters surround me as the occasional crayfish and fish beckon me to return soon and continue our last conversation.
Now, in the thick of summer, it's that time of the year for more canyon adventures! I'll be organising two walk in canyon hikes in the Blue Mountains in January! More details to follow later, but feel free to send me a DM for an idea of what's to come and state your interest! The summer heat is a perfect reason to get a little wet and enjoy the season!
This gorgeous off trail canyon in the Grand Canyon is just one example of many canyons easily accessible by walk-in, but not necessarily advertised or well known to hikers.
Location: Canyons of the Grand Canyon Trail, Blackheath, Blue Mountains - NSW
Directions: After heading to Blackheath and Evans Lookout Road, park at one of the carparks and start the famous roughly 3 hour loop trail. The back entrance to the canyons are located near the midpoint section and do require short swims at certain points but the first few sections can be done without getting wet. (DM for directions to canyon)
Highlights: This spectacular canyon can be accessed walk in from the back or as an abseil from the start accessed halfway down the Neates Glen side of the trail. Make sure you do the highlight of what is already a spectacular walk!

Thank you for letting me be apart of this special day for you both ❤️
This weekend we will be at our last markets before the new year begins! Come and see us for any last minute Christmas gifts or just to make your own home smell amazing 😊 #bluemountains#soycandles#markets
Views for days. Sneaky lil hike before swim camp session. (Supposedly 6 hours; 3hrs if you're a mountain goat - and don't mind falling and banging your head occasionally.) Also included: an opportunity to conquer your vertigo - or sit down and breathe to counteract adrenaline before watching your hiking companion scale to incredible heights. #bluemountains#hiking
I’m in my happy place for a few days. This is the dirt driveway on the property we recently sold out of our family. Prior to selling it, it was my grandparents home, and our family log cabin business. It’s always been my happy place. As a child I was given freedom to explore the 200 acres on horseback, down to the waterfalls and around the property and neighbouring Bush. I grew up taking out trail rides on my holidays at the riding school. It’s where I fell in love with horses. Had my first kiss. Ran wild with my cousins. Connected deeply with the earth. It still draws me back, three years after we sold the property. Luckily I can now pay to stay in one of the newly renovated cabins. I’m going for long walks, eating scones at the tea rooms (four generations of my family worked the tea rooms until recently) catching up with my family and resting. Big changes unfolding in my life, and I’m loving this little brief interlude of me time to reconnect with this patch of earth ❤️❤️ #happyplace#bluemountains#megalongvalley#breathe
Blue Mountains, Sydney - our first campingnight and unforgettable view. The world is beautiful.
One small switch at a time and it’s amazing how quickly you can reduce the amount of single use plastic you consume. .
I’ve been trying to find better ways to store food without using plastic ziplock bags or Saran Wrap. When traveling I began to realize that we would use much more plastic via plastic bags from the grocery store or zip lock baggies to carry food than I do at home. .
We’ve made a few changes along the way, like having a reusable grocery bag, Tupperware or @stasherbag (which I accidentally left in a hostel fridge 🤦🏼♀️), and bringing bamboo straws with us (which we forget about too often!), but this find has to be my favorite so far! .
We found it in a small town store in New Zealand. It’s made with 100% organic cotton, beeswax, tree resin, and jojoba oil and can be reused for up to one year! They are great for wrapping up food or covering bowls and it works by using the heat from your hands to wrap it around food or dishes. @honeywrap .
