My Australian Adventure



Our son David decided that he wanted to study
environmental science at a university in Australia
He was able to do this through Northern Arizona University
In March of 1999 I decided to travel there to see him and the country
I would like to share some of the lovely
pictures of things I saw


koalas
We were able to visit wildlife parks and get to see koalas up close. These guys were just hanging about waiting for dusk to start feeding. Koalas active time of day is dusk



3sisters
Three Sisters formation located in the Blue Mountains just outside of Sydney. There is a local legend having to do with aborigine's and this rock formation.



waterfall
Katoomba Falls located in the Blue Mountains. A most beautiful place.



mountain
Another beautiful view of the Blue Mountains. From a distance, the mountains give off a blue haze. For years this puzzled the Australians. In recent years it was discovered that the blue haze was caused by a substance given off from the eucalyptus trees.



mist
Some more beautiful scenery from the Blue Mountains. The Australians call the Blue Mountains the Aussie version of our Grand Canyon
