A great weekend with even greater friends up in the Blue Mountains.


Good Friends + Nature + Bush walks = Good Times! This weekend, we had all the ingredients of this equation, plenty actually. Damon, a friend from Simone’s lab, invited us together with a bunch of other great people up to Mount Victoria, where some family friends have a house in the middle of nowhere – at least that’s what it feels like.

The weather forecast was mediocre at best, but as often happens, it turned out to be a bit overly pessimistic. On Saturday, we went on a short but beautiful bush walk which went down into the valley to the Minnihaha Falls. On Sunday, we went on another walk which started at Mount Piddington, and went down the valley to Cox’s Cave, which was another spectacular walk.

A big “Thank You” to Damon and his family for inviting us, it was great!
