Aug 27th Blue Mountains, Australia
My mom and I woke up at our hosts house, Micheal. My mom and I decided that we were going to hike the blue mountains and see tourists attractions. Instead of taking a bus to the blue mountains we deceided to walk there which took aprox. 1 hour. We walked down a trail for about 3 minutes and we saw the first stop. It wasn't too
enjoyable because other people were being extremeley loud and talking in a extremely annoying languge which consists of A lot of words in high pitch. We took a quick look at the view and then left to go on our hike. we planned to go down to the forest floor and then come back up but before we do that we went to see The 3 sisters.
They look like 3 pillars to me, and if they were girls, they would have to be extremely ugly. We saw the caves and cool rock formations. After that experience we set out on our hike to the bottom of the forest. WE started hiking down and it started to get dark and the bugs started to come out. As we were walking down we saw the waterfall.
It was extremely loud. Near the bottom of the forest floor we saw a roller coaster like train that goes up so we took the train up the mountain. The roller coaster went really high straight up. It felt like you were getting pushed into the back of the seat and the floor. By the time we got back up to the top of the mountain it was dark and cold so we
headed back to the town of Katumba. We ate and then took the train to where we were staying. WE were both very tired so we went to sleep.
